PHIDU - Measure of Disadvantage - Summary (LGA) 2016

This dataset, released July 2018, contains the Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD), 2016. The data is by Local Government Area (LGA) 2016 geographic boundaries.

For more information please see the data source notes: http://www.phidu.torrens.edu.au/current/data/sha-aust/notes/phidu_data_sources_notes.pdf on the data.

Source: Compiled by PHIDU based on ABS Socio-economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA), 2016 data. The LGA data were re-produced from the ABS originals. Data for other geographic levels were constructed using population weighted averages, based on the published ABS SA2 data.

Please note:

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data: http://phidu.torrens.edu.au/social-health-atlases/data.
  • "*" - Indicates statistically significant, at the 95% confidence level.
  • "**" - Indicates statistically significant, at the 99% confidence level.
  • "~" - Indicates modelled estimates have Relative Root Mean Square Errors (RRMSEs) from 0.25 to 0.50 and should be used with caution.
  • "~~" - Indicates modelled estimates have RRMSEs greater than 0.50 but less than 1 and are considered too unreliable for general use.
  • '?' - Indicates modelled estimates are considered too unreliable.

  • Blank cell - Indicates data was not shown/not applicable/not published/not available for the specific area ('#', '..', '^', 'np, 'n.a.', 'n.y.a.' in original PHIDU data).
