Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas 96 - now available!

Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas 96 (SEIFA) is the latest CD-ROM product to become available from the 1996 Census of Population and Housing. SEIFA96 is a powerful analytical tool that allows you to compare the social and economic conditions of different geographic areas.

Using data from the 1996 Census, five indexes have been constructed to summarise the social and economic conditions of Australia by geographic area.


          The five Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas 96 are:

          1. Urban Index of Advantage
          2. Rural Index of Advantage
          3. Index of Disadvantage
          4. Index of Economic Resources
          5. Index of Education and Occupation

These indexes can assist clients in: market segmentation; identifying features of a unique target group; the analysis of consumer profiles; strategic planning; and identifying a new business location.

Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas 96 is available as a standard product or as an Add-On module to CDATA96. Alternatively, the ABS can customise areas to your requirements via our consultancy service.
