PHIDU - Measure of Disadvantage - Summary (PHN) 2011

This dataset, released March 2018, contains the Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD), 2011. The data is by Primary Health Network (PHN) 2017 geographic boundaries based on the 2016 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

There are 31 PHNs set up by the Australian Government. Each network is controlled by a board of medical professionals and advised by a clinical council and community advisory committee. The boundaries of the PHNs closely align with the Local Hospital Networks where possible.

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), 2011 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#social-health-atlas-of-australia-population-health-areas.
  • "*" - 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).
