AbstractThe Australian Divorce Transitions Project (ADTP) was undertaken with the broad aim of achieving a better understanding of how divorce can be made a functional transition for families in Australia. More specifically the ADTP's aims were: (1) to study divorce transition and its consequences for parents, and (2) to examine the impact of divorce on an older cohort for whom the issues of unemployment, housing, superannuation and future security are important concerns. Particular emphasis was placed upon the economic consequences of divorce. The ADTP is augmented by two other surveys: a Children's survey (see ADA No. 1043), and a Violence survey. This dataset reflects 3 questions asked of those respondents who refused to take part in the survey. The variables are current marital status, the respondent's age and year of divorce.
