Watch: Research impact
This video, played prior to the Prime Minister’s speech at ESOC2014, outlines the research impact of the Melbourne Institute.
Established in 1962, the Melbourne Institute was the first research institute of its kind in Australia. Over its long history, it has enhanced the wellbeing of all Australians by delivering high‐ quality, independent research that makes a sustained contribution to economic and social policy development.
The Melbourne Institute undertakes research across six areas. Four of these – socio‐economic disadvantage, public sector performance, productivity and living standards, and health and wellbeing – are focused upon building the evidence base for reform and contributing to public policy. The other two – the collection and analysis of survey data, and measuring economic and social outcomes – give us and other organisations the tools and data we need to help shape policy.
