Introduction

This paper provides data on four summary indexes, derived from the 1996 Census of Population and Housing, to measure different aspects of socio-economic conditions for Commonwealth Electoral Divisions.

The five-yearly censuses of population conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) collect data on a broad range of social and economic aspects of the Australian population. Each household is required to answer nearly fifty questions, covering such diverse topics as birthplace, occupation, educational qualifications, method of travel to work and ownership of dwellings. While it is possible to compare Electoral Divisions on the basis of each census variable it is often more useful to compare divisions on the basis of a summary of related variables. The indexes shown in this paper have been derived by the ABS for this purpose. A paper comparing Electoral Divisions on the basis of a number of individual census variables has been published previously by the Parliamentary Library.(1)

This paper shows each Electoral Division ranked on the basis of each index together with a description of each index and some notable features of the rankings. It has been produced from data obtained from the Australian Bureau of Statistics for Census Collection Districts (CCD) and aggregated to Commonwealth Electoral Divisions using the methodology recommended by the ABS (for details of the aggregation methodology see the Appendix pages 17-19). A more detailed explanation of the indexes is available from an Information Paper published by the ABS.(2)

Data for each index is presented in two tables. The first table shows each Electoral Division in alphabetical order and the second shows each Electoral Division ranked by the index (divisions are ranked from lowest to highest). The political party holding the Electoral Division after the 1998 election is shown on each table.

In the Highlights section of the paper reference is made to the geographic classification of individual Electoral Divisions. The geographic classification used has been devised by the Australian Electoral Commission, which classifies Electoral Divisions into one of four categories: inner-metropolitan; outer-metropolitan; provincial or rural.

Description of the Indexes

There are four indexes shown in this paper. Each index summarises a different aspect of the socio-economic conditions in the Electoral Divisions. The indexes have been obtained by summarising the information from a variety of social and economic variables. While there are similarities in the rankings of the Electoral Divisions, each index uses a different set of underlying variables.

The four indexes are:

  • Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage
  • Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage
  • Index of Economic Resources
  • Index of Education and Occupation.

All the indexes (including the Index of Relative Disadvantage) have been constructed so that relatively advantaged areas have high index values. For the Index of Relative Disadvantage this means that relatively disadvantaged areas have low index numbers. To enable easy recognition of high and low scores, the index scores have been standardised to have a mean of 1000 across all Collection Districts in Australia.

The Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage includes variables that measure relative social and economic well-being. Indicators included are: high income families; professional occupations; tertiary educational qualifications; dwellings owner or being purchased; dwellings with a large number of bedrooms and a large number of motor vehicles. A higher score on this index means that the Electoral Division has a relatively large proportion of people with the above attributes (i.e. high incomes, professional occupations, tertiary qualifications, etc.). Conversely, a lower score on this index means that the Electoral Division has a relatively low proportion of people with these characteristics.

The Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage was constructed by combining two indexes-the Urban Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage and the Rural Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage. Because the index is a combination of two other indexes with slightly different components it should be treated with some caution. See the Appendix to this paper for a further explanation of the construction of the index.

As the name implies the Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage is derived from attributes that indicate relative social and economic hardship. Variables included are low income, low educational attainment, unskilled occupations, unemployment, one-parent families, renting households and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. To maintain consistency with the other indexes the Index of Socio-Economic Disadvantage has been inverted so that advantaged Electoral Divisions have a high index score and disadvantaged divisions have a low score. Thus a high score on this index means that the Electoral Division has relatively fewer people with the above attributes, while a low score indicates relatively more people with these attributes.

In most cases Electoral Divisions that have a high score on the Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage will also have a high score on the Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage. That is, it is possible for an Electoral Division to contain two distinct population groups, one relatively well-off and one relatively less well-off. The Division of Longman in Queensland for example is ranked 74th (i.e. relatively high) on the Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage, yet is ranked just 19th (i.e. relatively low) on the Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage.

The Index of Economic Resources reflects the profile of the economic resources of families in Electoral Divisions. The indicators summarised in this index reflect the income and expenditure of families. Variables included are: home owner or purchaser households; high family incomes; high mortgage repayments and high rental payments. Variables covering non-income assets such as dwelling size and number of motor vehicles are also included. A high score on this index means that the Electoral Division has a higher proportion of families with these characteristics, while a low score indicates a lower proportion of families with these characteristics.

The Index of Education and Occupation is designed to reflect the educational and occupation of the population in Electoral Divisions. Education variables included in the index are the level of educational qualification attained or whether further study is being undertaken. Occupational variables include the major occupation groups and the unemployed. An Electoral Division with a high score on this index would have a high concentration of people with higher educational qualifications or undertaking further study and persons employed in higher skilled occupations. A low score indicates a concentration of people with low education attainment, low occupation skills or unemployed persons.

A list of the variables included in each index is shown in the Appendix to this paper.

Data Limitations

The indexes contained in this paper are subject to a number of limitations which should be borne in mind when the indexes are used to compare Electoral Divisions.

Firstly, the indexes include only some of the social and economic variables for which data was collected in the 1996 Census of Population and Housing. There are a number of social and economic indicators, such as wealth, savings, health, access to infrastructure, etc. that effect the well being of the population but were not collected in the census and are therefore not included in the indexes. In addition, the indexes include only a limited number of the available census variables. Some notable exclusions from the indexes are age, country of birth, religion and hours of work.

Secondly, the indexes which have been produced depend upon the variables that have been included and the relative weights attached to those variables. The inclusion of a different range of variables or a different weighting pattern would result in a different index score. The indexes included in this paper are only four of the many indexes that could have been produced using census data.

In addition to the above conceptual limitations in the indexes there are a number of technical limitations. Non-response to individual census items may affect the accuracy of the indexes if there is a socio-economic bias to non-response. Persons in non-private dwellings (e.g. boarding houses, etc.) are under-represented in the indexes as the variables pertaining to families and dwellings include only occupied private dwellings. The census results are based on place of enumeration rather than place of usual residence, thus holiday resort areas (e.g. Gold Coast) may be affected.

Other aspects of the indexes that should be borne in mind when comparing the indexes for different Electoral Divisions are that:

  • The indexes are 'ordinal measures' and not 'interval measures'. The indexes can be used to order Electoral Divisions into a ranked order but cannot be used to show that one Division is twice as well off if its index score is twice that of an other Division.
  • The indexes reflect the socio-economic well being of an Electoral Division rather than of individuals. Because all people in an Electoral Division are not identical the index scores do not apply to individuals but rather the way people are summed together for the area.
  • The degree of heterogeneity within a Collection District influences the index score of that Collection District and hence the Electoral Division; the more homogeneous Collection Districts tend towards the extreme index scores.
  • Partly because of the above, the interpretation of the index is more straightforward for Electoral Divisions that have extreme values. For example, it is usually easy to see why an Electoral Division with a high index score has that status, but it is more difficult to draw comparisons between Electoral Divisions with mid-ranked scores.

Highlights

The following section provides comment on the main features of each index. Because of the similar variables used to construct each index there are certain similarities in the rankings of Electoral Divisions for the various indexes. For instance, the division of Bradfield is ranked highest on each index while the divisions of Fowler and Bonython are the two lowest ranked divisions for three out of the four indexes. A number of divisions in the north shore area of Sydney and in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne appear in the top 20 rankings for each index. Similarly a number of rural and outer-metropolitan divisions appear in the bottom 20 rankings for all indexes.

Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage

This index measures the relative social and economic well being of the area. The Electoral Division with the highest index score is the Sydney north shore division of Bradfield, while the division with the lowest score is the outer-suburban Adelaide division of Bonython. The median divisions (index score where there are an equal number of divisions above and below that score) are Longman in Queensland and Gippsland in Victoria.

Most of the 20 highest ranked divisions are located on the north shore of Sydney (Bradfield, Berowra, North Sydney, Warringah, Bennelong and Mackellar) and in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne (Kooyong, Menzies, Higgins and Goldstein). Other divisions to feature in the top 20 are the traditionally well off areas of Brisbane (Ryan) and Perth (Curtin). No South Australian or Tasmanian divisions feature in the top 20. All but three of the top 20 divisions are held by the Liberal Party, the exceptions being the two ACT divisions (Canberra and Fraser) and Melbourne Ports.

Divisions with a low score are typically either outer-suburban or rural. Of the 20 divisions with the lowest score, eight are outer-suburban (Fowler, Chifley and Werriwa in Sydney, Holt in Melbourne, Oxley and Rankin in Brisbane and Bonython and Kingston in Adelaide) and six are rural (Gwydir in New South Wales, Maranoa, Wide Bay and Leichhardt, in Queensland and Grey and Barker in South Australia. Fourteen of the 20 lowest ranked divisions are held by the Labor Party while the six rural divisions are held equally by the Liberal Party and the National Party.

Index of Relative Socio-Economic Disadvantage

This index measures the relative social and economic hardship in an area and to a certain extent displays a similar pattern to the Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage described above. It should be noted that to maintain consistency with the other indexes this index has inverted so that the higher the index score the better-off an area is while the lower the index score the less well-off an area is. The Electoral Division with the highest score is Bradfield while the division with the lowest score is the outer-suburban Sydney division of Fowler, centred on Cabramatta. The median divisions are Herbert, based on Townsville in north Queensland, and the northern Perth division of Stirling.

As with the Index of Socio-Economic Advantage most of the 20 highest ranked divisions are located on the north shore of Sydney (Bradfield, North Sydney, Berowra, Warringah, Mackellar and Bennelong) or in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne (Kooyong, Higgins, Menzies, Goldstein and Aston). Two southern Sydney divisions (Hughes and Cook) also feature in the top 20 divisions. All but two of the top 20 divisions are held by the Liberal Party, the exceptions once again being the two Labor Party held divisions in the ACT (Canberra and Fraser).

Rural areas are prominent in the lower ranked divisions, reflecting the lower family incomes and lack of educational opportunities in rural Australia. Of the 20 lowest ranked divisions, nine are rural divisions (Cowper, Gwydir, Lyne and Page in New South Wales, Wide Bay, Hinkler and Longman in Queensland, Grey in South Australia and Braddon in Tasmania). Two provincial divisions, Throsby based on Wollongong and Brand in Western Australia, also feature in the bottom 20. Because of the presence of a number of rural divisions political representation in the bottom 20 divisions is more evenly spread than in the Index of Advantage. Twelve divisions are held by the Labor Party, six by the National Party and two by the Liberal Party.

An indication of the lack of homogeneity within a particular Electoral Division can be obtained by comparing the relative positions on the rankings between the two indexes of advantage and disadvantage. For example, if an Electoral Division has a concentration of people who are relatively well off in one part of the division and a concentration of people who are not so well off in another part this will be reflected in a relatively high ranking on the Index of Advantage and a relatively low ranking on the Index of Disadvantage. By this measure the two least homogenous divisions are Longman, located to the north of Brisbane and the inner-suburban Melbourne. Longman is ranked in the middle (74th) on the Index of Advantage yet is ranked only 19th on the Index of Disadvantage. Although Longman is classified as a rural division its southern boundary does contain some outer-suburbs of Brisbane and it would be the disparity in incomes between the suburban and rural components that influence the division's different ranking. The situation in the division of Melbourne is typical of inner-metropolitan areas containing a mixture of well off suburbs and not so well off suburbs. The division of Melbourne is ranked in the top third (105th) of divisions on the Index of Advantage and is ranked 55th on the index of Disadvantage. Other divisions to display a wide discrepancy are: Blair in Queensland and Cowper; Page and Gilmore in New South Wales.

Index of Economic Resources

This index measures the economic resources or income and expenditure patterns of families. Not surprisingly the distribution of Electoral Divisions in this index are very similar to the distribution in the Indexes of Advantage and Disadvantage. Once again the Electoral Division with the highest index score is Bradfield in Sydney, while the division with the lowest score is the South Australian rural division of Grey. The median divisions are Werriwa in south-western Sydney and Kingston in southern Adelaide.

As with the Indexes of Advantage and Disadvantage the top 20 places in the rankings for this index are dominated by divisions located in the well-off suburbs in the capital cities, although neither Adelaide nor Hobart divisions are included in the top 20. All but two of the top 20 divisions are held by the Liberal Party, the exceptions being Canberra and the north-eastern Melbourne division of Jagajaga.

At the bottom end of the rankings rural divisions predominate, reflecting low family incomes and low rental and mortgage payments in rural Australia. The Index of Economic Resources is the only index where the Coalition parties hold more divisions in the bottom 20 than the Labor Party. The preponderance of rural divisions at the lower end of the rankings is further emphasised by the fact that the National Party holds no divisions with a score above the median.

Index of Education and Occupation

This index is designed to measure the educational attainment and occupational status of the population. Like the other indexes a familiar pattern emerges. The division with the highest ranking is Bradfield, while the division with the lowest ranking is Bonython. The median divisions are the south-eastern Melbourne division of Isaacs and the south-eastern Brisbane division of Fadden.

Once again the top 20 places in the rankings for this index are dominated by divisions located on the north shore of Sydney and in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. However, there are a number of divisions appearing in the top 20 for this index that are not in the top 20 for the other indexes. These divisions are: Sydney; Melbourne; Brisbane and the eastern suburbs of Melbourne division of Chisholm. The high ranking for these divisions is probably a function of the location of tertiary education institutions in or near these divisions. Given the more diverse spread of divisions in the top 20 it is not surprising to find that the political complexion is also more evenly spread. Of the top 20 divisions, the Liberal Party holds 13, while the Labor Party holds seven.

Rural divisions make up the majority of the divisions at the bottom end of the rankings, reflecting the lack of tertiary education opportunities and professional occupational groups in rural Australia. Perhaps reflecting the gentrification of the inner suburbs of the capital cities, no inner-metropolitan divisions are in the bottom 20. Out of the 20 divisions at the bottom of the rankings, the Labor Party holds 11 divisions, while the National Party holds five and the Liberal Party four.

Appendix

The indexes in this paper are derived from Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The indexes are based on a variety of underlying social and economic variables from the 1996 Census on Population and Housing. The ABS has constructed these indexes for each Census Collection District (CCD) in Australia. The Indexes for Commonwealth Electoral Divisions were calculated as a weighted average of the indexes for the CCDs in each Division (with the weight being the total population of the CCD). All the indexes (including the Index of Relative Disadvantage) have been constructed so that relatively advantaged areas have high index values. To enable easy recognition of high and low scores, the index scores have been standardised to have a mean of 1000 and a standard deviation of 100 across all CCDs in Australia.

The Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage was constructed by combining two separate indexes - the Urban Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage and the Rural Index of Relative Socio-Economic Advantage. The urban index covers CCDs in urban centres with a population of 1000 and over, and the rural index covers CCDs in the remaining areas of Australia. The urban/rural split is considered necessary because major structural differences exist in the relationships between socio-economic variables related to advantage for the urban and rural areas. However, it is possible to combine the two indexes to produce a composite Index of Advantage for geographic units that are comprised of both urban and rural CCDs.

The variables used to construct each index are given below:
