McKay H & Fisher J. Childless women at midlife - a report on a sub-study from the Women's Health Australia mid-age cohort. , ; :

Childless rates amongst Australian women are rising. Such demographic change has the potential to affect government revenue, via altered paid employment patterns, and demands on government resources, through changes in childless women’s needs. To understand these issues better this paper compares demographic characteristics and measurements of well-being between mid aged childless women and their peers who are mothers using data from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health.
