Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) is a product developed by the ABS that ranks areas in Australian according to relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage. The indexes are based on information from the five-yearly Census.

SEIFA 2011 is the latest version of this product and consists of four indexes: The Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage (IRSD); The Index of Relative Socio-economic Advantage and Disadvantage (IRSAD); The Index of Education and Occupation (IEO); The Index of Economic Resources (IER).

Each index is a summary of a different subset of Census variables and focuses on a different aspect of socio-economic advantage and disadvantage.

A basic user guide and comprehensive technical paper accompany this release of the indexes.
