The Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas 2001 (SEIFA 2001) is a product developed
especially for those interested in the assessment of the welfare of Australian
communities. The ABS has developed indexes to allow ranking of regions/areas,
providing a method of determining the level of social and economic well-being in
that region.
The 4 indexes are;
* Index of Advantage\Disadvantage - A new index, and is a continuum of advantage
to disadvantage. Low values indicate areas of disadvantage; and high values
indicate areas of advantage.
* Index of Disadvantage - focuses on low income earners, relatively lower
educational attainment, high unemployment, rented dwellings and people lacking
fluency in English.
* Index of Economic Resources - This index includes variables that are
associated with economic resources. Variables include rent paid, income by
family type, mortgage payments and rental properties.
* Index of Education and Occupation - This index includes all education and
occupation variables only.
These indexes show where affluent (as opposed to just high income earning) live;
where disadvantaged (as opposed to the unemployed) live: and where the highly
skilled and educated (as opposed to the tertiary educated people) live.
For further information on the 4 indexes, derived from the 2001 Census of
Population and Housing, please refer to the information paper entitled, '2039.0
Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas'. This information paper is located on the
SEIFA 2001 CD-ROM, as a pdf file in the Installation Instructions folder.
