UPDATE ON SEIFA REVIEW - 2001 PRODUCTION COMMENCES
The first step in this review was a literature search, which looked at overseas and Australian indexes of disadvantage. This identified a number of issues which were raised with users in a set of papers covering the variable selection process for 2001.
The papers were distributed to a variety of users who expressed an interest in the indexes. Around 200 users were contacted and a number of discussions and meetings were held. A summary of views paper was subsequently prepared for ongoing development, considering all comments and views, and with the limitations of the data and methods used for SEIFA in mind.
With a summary of recommendations now in place, production and preliminary analysis of the data has commenced, along with the calculation of indexes themselves. A description of the final content and design of SEIFA 2001 will be provided in the next issue of Census Update.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
