The Indexes

Each index aims to capture a slightly different aspect of relative advantage and/or disadvantage and is constructed using different variables. It is therefore likely that the same area will have different rankings on each index. For example, it is possible for an area to rank relatively lowly in the Disadvantage index, but not in the Advantage and Disadvantage index, because these indexes include different variables.

The following sections provide information on each index, including the concept it is trying to measure, the variables included, and tips on when to use it.

Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage (IRSD)
Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage and Disadvantage (IRSAD)
Index of Economic Resources (IER)
Index of Education and Occupation (IEO)
