The experimental Index of Household Advantage and Disadvantage (IHAD) summarises relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage for households, using the 2016 Census of Population and Housing.
The following IHAD data cubes are available from the Downloads tab:
Statistical Areas Level 1
Presents information at the household level; the percentage of households within each IHAD quartile for Statistical Areas Level 1 (SA1s).
States and territories
Presents information at the person level; the percentage of persons living in households within each IHAD quartile for states and territories, and Australia.
All people living in a household are assigned the same IHAD quartile number that corresponds with their household's IHAD quartile number.
For example, in Table 1 State and territory, percentage of persons in the IHAD quartiles, by Indigenous status; for people living in NSW, there are:
- 17.4% of non-Indigenous people living in a household in the most disadvantaged IHAD quartile and
- 43.2% of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people living in a household in the most disadvantaged IHAD quartile.
