ABOUT THIS RELEASE

Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas 2001 (SEIFA 2001) is a product developed especially for those interested in the assessment of the welfare of Australian communities. The ABS has developed indexes to allow ranking of regions/areas, providing a method of determining the level of social and economic well-being in that region.
The four indexes are:
Index of Advantage\Disadvantage
Index of Disadvantage
Index of Economic Resources
Index of Education and Occupation

These indexes show where the affluent (as opposed to just high income earning) live; where disadvantaged (as opposed to the unemployed) live: and where the highly skilled and educated (as opposed to the tertiary educated people) live.

SEIFA 2001 provides information and rankings for a wide range of geographic areas.

This product is separately available for each State and Territory and Australia.
