In the lead-up to BASECAMP (a conference for men I’m involved in), we’ve prepared an infographic with 10 statistics about Australian men. The statistics, each from reputable, describe some of the significant challenges facing men in Australia today.
- 80% of suicides in Australia are by men.
- Up to 59% of men feel they are not part of a community.
- One in five Australian children lives with only one natural parent. In 81% of cases, the absent parent is the father.
They serve a reminder of the need for men to gather together, strengthen their relationships with each other, and most importantly, to hear from God.
