ABS - Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) (CD) 1996

This data is Census Collection Districts (CD) based Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) data based on the 1996 census. The data follows the 1996 Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) boundaries.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has developed five indexes to allow ranking of regions/areas, providing a method of determining the level of social and economic wellbeing in that region.

The five indexes are: Urban Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage Rural Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage Index of Economic Resources Index of Education and Occupation

These indexes show where the 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. SEIFA 1996 provides information and rankings for a wide range of geographic areas.
