Summary of cost of living changes in the June Quarter 2018. This Update features an in depth look at the cost of living for those on Newstart and other base level social security payments, including budgets from 5 social security recipients. The statistical analysis shows the value of Newstart has declined over 20 years, both in real terms and in comparison with the income of most households in South Australia, while the budgets show how difficult (impossible) it is to make ends meets on Newstart.
