NATSEM - Indicators - Child Social Exclusion Index (SLA) 2006

NATSEM child social exclusion index (2006) by SLA boundaries in Australia. Brisbane SLAs have been aggregated up to Local Council Electoral Wards and ACT SLAs have been aggregated up to Statistical Sub-Divisions. The index is calculated based on data from the ABS Census of Population and Housing 2006. In the data, the lowest CSE quintile represents the highest risk of child social exclusion. The Child Social Exclusion Index estimates social exclusion risk at a small area level for children aged 0 - 4 , 5 - 15 and 0 - 15 years. The index is based on characteristics of children's parents, families and households, and includes data about parental partnership status, employment and volunteerism, family educational attainment and occupation, household income, housing, transport and internet connection. The index depends on the variables chosen to represent social exclusion and the methodology used to summarise these data. Prior to the indexation, NATSEM remove any SLAs that had low cell counts or had a very high non-response rate in the census. Low cell counts mean that even a very small change in the data can mean a large percentage change (so one extra child at risk of social exclusion may represent a 33 per cent increase if there are only 3 children in the SLA). To deal with the issue of low cell counts, NATSEM excluded from the analysis SLAs with fewer than 30 children in either the 0-4 or 5-15 age groups. These SLAs are noted with an asterisk (*).
