Abstract In Australia, personal bankruptcy is governed by the Bankruptcy Act 1966 (Cth) and is regulated by the Insolvency Trustee Service Australia. Bankruptcy refers to three types being: bankruptcy, debt agreements, and personal insolvency agreements. This article is an update of the trends presented in the 2009 research paper by Ramsay and Sim (covering 1990-2008) by adding the data for the years ended 2009-2011 using both the regulator's site and the Australian Bureau of Statistics resources. The authors find a 4.06% decrease in personal insolvencies for the last three years and seek to draw inferences around reasons for these changes.
