ABS - Index of Household Advantage and Disadvantage (IHAD) (SA2) 2016

This dataset presents information from 2016 at the household level; the percentage of households within each Index of Household Advantage and Disadvantage (IHAD) quartile for Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) 2016 boundaries.

The IHAD is an experimental analytical index developed by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) that provides a summary measure of relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage for households. It utilises information from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing. IHAD quartiles: All households are ordered from lowest to highest disadvantage, the lowest 25% of households are given a quartile number of 1, the next lowest 25% of households are given a quartile number of 2 and so on, up to the highest 25% of households which are given a quartile number of 4. This means that households are divided up into four groups, depending on their score.

Please note:

  • AURIN has generated this dataset through aggregating the original SA1 level data: https://www.abs.gov.au/AUSSTATS/abs@.nsf/DetailsPage/4198.02016?OpenDocument (with calculated number of households/quartile) to SA2 level.
  • The number of occupied private dwellings, and number of households in each of the IHAD quartiles for each SA2 were calculated by aggregating the values of each of those specified columns from the SA1 dataset. Percentages of households in each of the IHAD quartiles were calculated for each SA2 from these aggregated totals.
  • A household is defined as one or more persons, at least one of whom is at least 15 years of age, usually resident in the same private dwelling. All occupants of a dwelling form a household. For Census purposes, the total number of households is equal to the total number of occupied private dwellings (Census of Population and Housing: Census Dictionary, 2016 cat. no. 2901.0).
  • IHAD output has been confidentialised to meet ABS requirements. In line with standard ABS procedures to minimise the risk of identifying individuals, a technique has been applied to randomly adjust cell values of the output tables. These adjustments may cause the sum of rows or columns to differ by small amounts from table totals.
