INDEX OF DISADVANTAGE
There are various social reasons why people living in disadvantaged areas experience poorer health outcomes. People with chronic conditions may have a reduced ability to earn income. Family members may reduce or cease employment to provide care, while people or families whose income is reduced may move to disadvantaged areas in order to access low-cost housing (Australian Social Trends, Mar 2010, cat. no. 4102.0). It is not possible to establish any association or causal relationship between disability and where people with disability live. Nor is it possible to tell from the data whether disability is acquired while living in these locations or whether people move to these areas because of lower costs or other reasons.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
