Socio-Economic Status & Health AT3

Order Description
1) Only choose 1 topic: Single parent Australian families or Migrant adults in Australia
2) Need to use subheadings.
3) No more than 1500 words.
1) Topic choices include (only choose 1 topic):
– Single parent Australian families
– Migrant adults in Australia

2) Need to include in the report:
– Introduction

– A discussion of why the topic is important: This part extends on the introduction to define the group/family type, their SES and why this particular topic is important
(i.e. why is the SES and health of children and parents in single parent families important? Why is the SES and health of migrant adults important?).

– An exploration of the factors impacting the topic SES drawing on a model of theoretical framework that we have covered in the unit (i.e. Dahlgren and Whitehead, or Christensen). You only need to draw on one model so that you are able to discuss it in enough detail. You may not be able to go into great detail about each section of the model but you need to provide a thorough analysis of your topic in respect to the model and the impacts on the SES.

– A critical analysis of the health implications of SES for this topic: This is where the current knowledge is summarised, including data and research (i.e. journals, ABS data, AIHW data/research etc.). Remember that you are discussing these topics/family types within the Australian context so your information/resources should reflect this.

– Conclusion

– Reference list
3) All sources need to relate to Australia and should be published between 2006 and 2016.
4) Need to use subheadings.
5) No more than 1500 words.

Socio-Economic Status & Health
Assessment Task 3 ? Report

1500 words, 40%

Information
This assessment requires students to write a report on links between SES, health and their chosen topic in the Australian context.
Topic choices include (only choose 1 topic):
– Single parent Australian families
– Migrant adults in Australia
This report will involve students outlining the topic and its importance, an exploration of the factors impacting the SES of your chosen topic drawing on a theoretical model, and critically analysing the health implications of SES for the selected topic. In order to write the report, students will need to draw on a range of relevant information and be able to critically synthesize the information.

FAQs
What do I have to do?
Prepare a 1500 word report on a topic (choice of two above).
Do I have to pick from the list of topics?
Yes you will need to pick one topic from the two options as this relates back to the content for this unit. The discussion must be specific to the Australian context as per the marking guide.

– Reference list

Should I use subheadings?
Yes subheadings are appropriate for this type of report.
How many references do I need?
As per the marking guide, in order to receive a HD for this category you need to include 15 or more credible, relevant and current sources. It is really important that you are drawing from a range of sources including journals, books, reports and government websites (lecture notes are NOT an appropriate source). To ensure that your references/sources are current they should be published between 2006 and 2016. For this assignment you need to use Harvard style referencing. In-text citations are included in word count, your reference list is not included in the word count.
What are the presentation requirements?
All assignments should be 12 point font and 1.5 spaced with the default page margins. Assignments also need to include the word count and page numbers. You will be marked on these in the writing and referencing criteria.
