ABS - Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) - The Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (SA2) 2016

This data is SA2 based SEIFA data on The Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage, 2016. Data is based upon 2016 ASGS boundaries.

Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) is an ABS product that ranks areas in Australia according to relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage. The indexes are based on information from the five-yearly Census of Population and Housing.

SEIFA 2016 has been created from Census 2016 data and consists of four indexes: The Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD); The Index of Relative Socio-economic Advantage and Disadvantage (IRSAD); The Index of Education and Occupation (IEO); The Index of Economic Resources (IER).

Each index is a summary of a different subset of Census variables and focuses on a different aspect of socio-economic advantage and disadvantage.
