Executive summary

  • The Census collects data on a broad range of social and economic measures of the Australian population. While it is possible to compare electoral divisions on individual census data items, it is often more useful to compare divisions on the basis of a summary of related social and economic data items. This paper provides data on the four separate summary indexes derived from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing:
    • Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage,
    • Index of Relative Socio-economic Advantage/Disadvantage,
    • Index of Economic Resources, and
    • Index of Education and Occupation.
  • The paper shows each electoral division ranked on the basis of each index. The electoral boundaries used in this paper are the boundaries that will be used in the upcoming federal election. The paper is an updated version of an earlier paper that was based on the 2006 electoral division boundaries.
  • The paper also includes colour coded thematic maps of electoral divisions for each index. 

Introduction

This paper provides data on four separate socio-economic summary indexes from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. These four indexes, referred to as Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA), measure different aspects of socio-economic conditions for individual Census Collection Districts (CCDs). Each SEIFA index can be aggregated for a broad range of different geographic areas and this paper reports on SEIFA data for Commonwealth electoral divisions.

The electoral boundaries used in this paper incorporate the recent redistributions in New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania. These boundaries will be used in the upcoming federal election on Saturday 21 August 2010. This paper is an updated version of an earlier paper[1] that was based on the 2006 electoral division boundaries. It uses the same CCD level census data for the four SEIFA indexes with the difference that each CCD is now classified to a 2009 electoral division of best fit.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) conducts a population census once every five years, collecting data on a broad range of social, economic and demographic aspects of the Australian population. For the 2006 Census, each household was required to answer sixty questions covering diverse topics such as birthplace, occupation, education, income, employment, family composition, housing, and motor vehicle ownership. While it is possible to compare electoral divisions on the basis of each census variable[2], it can be more useful to compare divisions on the basis of a summary measure of related census variables. The indexes shown in this paper have been created by the ABS for this purpose.

This paper contains tables and maps of electoral divisions ranked on the basis of each of the four SEIFA indexes, together with a description of each index and some comments on the notable features of the electoral rankings. SEIFA data for electoral divisions are created as a population weighted average of the CCDs within each electoral division. All indexes are constructed so that relatively disadvantaged areas have low index values. A more detailed explanation of the indexes is available from an Information Paper and a Technical Paper published by the ABS.[3]   

Data for each index are presented in Tables 1 to 4 and there are two versions of each table. The first version shows each electoral division in alphabetical order while the second version shows each electoral division ranked by the index score value (divisions are ranked from lowest index value to highest). For all of the indexes, a low index score indicates relative disadvantage.

The political party that notionally holds each seat after recent redistributions is also shown in each table. There are six seats currently held by the Liberal Party that are considered to be notionally ALP seats based on an estimated two party preferred vote that incorporates the effect of  redistributions. These six seats are Gilmore, Greenway and Macarthur in New South Wales, Dickson and Herbert in Queensland, and Swan in Western Australia. The new seats of Wright in Queensland and Durack in Western Australia are both notionally Liberal Party seats based on voting patterns at the 2007 election. The seat of Lyne is currently held by an independent member following a by-election in 2008. It is shown as an independent held seat in the tables since a meaningful two party preferred vote cannot be estimated for independent held seats. The seat of Ryan is shown as notionally a Liberal Party seat even though the sitting member was expelled from the party on 20 May 2010.   

Table 5 contains a summary of the rankings for each of the four indexes together with the demographic classification of each electoral division as defined by the Australian Electoral Commission. Each division is classified as being in one of four possible demographic  categories:

  • inner metropolitan divisions comprise well established built-up suburbs located in capital cities
  • outer metropolitan divisions comprise areas of more recent suburban expansion of capital cities
  • provincial divisions comprise areas with a majority of voters in major provincial cities, or in non-metropolitan urban conglomerates, and
  • rural divisions comprise areas without a majority of voters in major provincial cities.

The paper includes colour coded thematic maps of electoral divisions for each of the four indexes. The five colours shown on each map represent area-based quintiles. This means that the 150 electoral divisions are ranked and then split into five groups (of 30 divisions each) and each group is shown in a different shade of green with the lightest colour representing the most disadvantaged areas. There is also an appendix containing a detailed list of the variables used to construct each index.

Description of the indexes

There are four indexes shown in this paper. Each index represents a different aspect of socio-economic disadvantage in electoral divisions. The indexes have been created by combining and summarising information from a variety of social and economic variables from the 2006 Census. Each index uses a different set of underlying census variables. The appendix to this paper contains a detailed list of the variables included in each index.

The four indexes are:

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

All the indexes have been constructed so that relatively disadvantaged areas have low index values. To enable easy interpretation of relatively high and low scores, the index scores for Collection Districts have been standardised to have a mean of 1000 across all Collection Districts in Australia. It is not always meaningful to give a CCD a SEIFA score. Around three per cent of all CCDs do not have a SEIFA score and are omitted from calculations of SEIFA scores for larger geographic areas. The mean index score for electoral divisions (and other geographic aggregates of CCDs) does not necessarily have a mean value of exactly 1000, although the mean score will, in practice, be close to 1000.

As a general rule, every effort is made by the ABS to keep the SEIFA indexes the same as the previous release (from the 2001 Census). However, some changes are important or unavoidable. The 2006 Census SEIFA indexes comprise the same four indexes as released for the 2001 Census SEIFA, although some of the variables used to construct each of the four indexes have changed since 2001.

The Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage includes variables that measure access to material and social resources of people and households. The index is designed to focus on disadvantage only.  A low score on this index indicates a high proportion of relatively disadvantaged people in an area. You cannot conclude that an area with a very high score has a large proportion of relatively advantaged (‘well off’) people, as there are no variables in this index to indicate this.  You can only conclude that such an area has a relatively low incidence of disadvantage. There are 17 indicators used to construct this index including topics such as income, education, occupation, employment status, family type, dwelling size and tenure, internet connection, English proficiency, motor vehicles, and marital status.       

The Index of Relative Socio-economic Advantage/Disadvantage includes variables that also measure access to material and social resources of people and households. This index includes measures of relative social and economic disadvantage as well as well-being. A low score indicates relatively greater disadvantage and a lack of advantage in general. A high score indicates a relative lack of disadvantage and greater advantage in general. There are 21 indicators used to construct the index. There are eight indicators that measure relative advantage and 13 indicators that measure disadvantage.  Of the 13 disadvantage indicators, 12 are the same indicators used in the construction of the Disadvantage Index.  The additional indicators of relative advantage in this index (compared with the Disadvantage Index) cover dwelling size, educational qualifications, mortgage and rent levels, occupation, internet, and income. 

The Index of Economic Resources includes variables that reflect the financial aspects of relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage of households within an area. The variables in this index measure household incomes, expenditures and wealth. There are 15 indicators used to construct the index covering mortgage and rental repayments, income, size of dwellings, and family type. Of the 15 indicators, six are the same indicators used in the Disadvantage Index while 10 are the same indicators used in the Advantage/Disadvantage Index. This index includes indicators of both high and low income, as well as variables correlated with high or low wealth. It does not include education or occupation measures. A low score indicates a relative lack of access to economic resources while a high score indicates relatively greater access to economic resources.

The Index of Education and Occupation summarises variables relating exclusively to education, employment and occupation. There are nine indicators used in the index. Of these nine indicators, two are the same indicators used in the Disadvantage Index while four are the same indicators used in the Advantage/Disadvantage Index. The index includes both ‘low’ and ‘high’ measures of education and occupation and it does not include any measures of income. A low score indicates relatively lower education and occupation status of people in an area while a high score indicates relatively higher education and occupation status of people in an area. This index is highly correlated with the Disadvantage Index and the Advantage/Disadvantage Index, but it has only a medium correlation with the Economic Resources index (which is not unexpected since these two indexes have only one indicator in common). 

Data limitations

The indexes contained in this paper are subject to a number of limitations that should be borne in mind when they are used to compare electoral divisions, or other geographic boundaries.

It is difficult to capture an abstract concept like socio-economic disadvantage and the SEIFA indexes only include some of the social and economic variables from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. There are a number of social and economic indicators such as wealth, savings, health, remoteness, and access to infrastructure, that all affect the well-being of the population but are not collected in the census and therefore are not included in the indexes.

The SEIFA indexes that have been produced for the 2006 Census are dependent upon the variables that have been included and the relative weights attached to each of those variables (see Appendix).  The inclusion of different variables or different weighting patterns would result in different index scores.[4]

In addition to the above conceptual and methodological limitations, there are a number of technical limitations associated with use of the indexes. Non-response to individual census items may affect the accuracy of the indexes if there is a socio-economic bias to the non-response. Persons in non-private dwellings such as boarding houses are under-represented in the indexes as the indicators relating to families and dwellings include only occupied private dwellings.

Other aspects of the indexes should be borne in mind when analysing and comparing the indexes for different electoral divisions:

  • The indexes are ‘ordinal measures’ and not ‘interval measures’. This means that the indexes can be used to order the electoral divisions into a ranked order but cannot be used to show that one division is twice as well-off if its score is twice that of another division.
  • The indexes reflect the average socio-economic well-being of people and households in an area, not information about an individual person or household in an area. If you have person level data it is not valid to link it to SEIFA scores.
  • SEIFA index scores are created at the CCD level because CCDs are the smallest census geographic area that is currently available. Even though CCDs are small in size, people and households within a CCD can be quite different to each other and SEIFA represents an average of these different people. When SEIFA scores are created for larger areas such as electoral divisions, these larger areas will have a greater diversity of people and households. Care must be taken when interpreting the index scores for large geographic areas because the index scores can be less meaningful.
  • Partly because of the above factors, the interpretation of an index is more straightforward for electoral divisions that have extreme values. It is difficult to draw comparisons between electoral divisions with mid-ranked scores.
  • Two areas may have a similar index score, but for very different reasons. For example, a low score in one area may be due to a high proportion of low income households, while a low score in a different area may instead be due to a high proportion of low-rent households. 

It is recommended that users do not compare SEIFA scores over time for a geographic area. SEIFA is only a relative measure, not an absolute measure of socio-economic disadvantage. An area may have a higher or lower score than it did previously, however, this could be due to changes in other areas, rather than changes to that area. Although the ABS attempts to maintain consistency in SEIFA releases for each census, there are changes in the variables and their weights used to calculate each SEIFA index. An example of this is the inclusion of, for the first time, a question on broadband internet access. This variable has been included in the Advantage/Disadvantage Index.      

Main features

The following section provides comment on the main features of each index. Because similar variables are used to construct each index, there are some similarities in the rankings of electoral divisions for the various indexes. For example, the ten divisions that are ranked highest for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index comprise nine of the same top ten divisions for the Disadvantage Index, seven of the top ten divisions for the Economic Resources Index, and seven of the top ten divisions for the Education and Occupation Index. At the other end of the rankings, the ten divisions that are ranked lowest for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index comprise seven of the bottom ten divisions for the Disadvantage Index, six of the bottom ten divisions for the Economic Resources Index, and seven of the bottom ten divisions for the Education and Occupation Index. 

Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage

The ranking of electoral divisions for this index displays a similar pattern to the ranking for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index.  This is understandable since 12 of the 21 indicators in this index are also in the Advantage/Disadvantage Index.

The electoral division with the highest index score is Bradfield, followed by Berowra and Mitchell. The five electoral divisions with the highest index scores are all on Sydney’s north shore.

The top ten electoral divisions are all held by the Liberal Party. They comprise nine of the same top ten as for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index with seven of these divisions in New South Wales (Bradfield, Mitchell, Berowra, North Sydney, Warringah, Wentworth, and Mackellar), one in Queensland (Ryan), one in Victoria (Kooyong), and one in Western Australia (Tangney). 

Metropolitan divisions dominate the higher rankings. Of the 30 divisions with the highest ranking, 29 are inner metropolitan or outer metropolitan divisions. The highest ranked non-metropolitan electorates are Macquarie (ranked 30th highest) and McEwen (ranked 34th highest).  

The electoral division with the lowest index score is Lingiari, followed by Fowler and Blaxland. The ten divisions with the lowest ranking comprise four in New South Wales (Fowler, Blaxland, Chifley and Watson), three in South Australia (Wakefield, Port Adelaide and Grey), two in Tasmania (Braddon and Lyons), and one in the Northern Territory (Lingiari). Of these ten divisions, nine are held by the ALP and one is held by the Liberal Party.

The bottom 20 ranked electoral divisions include 13 rural divisions, three inner metropolitan divisions, two outer metropolitan divisions, and two provincial divisions.

The 41 inner metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 1031 which is above the overall average index score of 1005 (but not as relatively high as for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index). The 45 outer metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 1018 which is also above the overall average. Provincial and rural divisions each have an average index score below the overall average. The 21 provincial divisions have an average index score of 993, and the 43 rural divisions have an average index score of 972.   

There are some divisions that have a significantly different ranking for the Disadvantage Index compared with the Advantage/Disadvantage Index. Blaxland is ranked 3rd lowest division for the Disadvantage Index but is ranked 18th lowest for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index. Watson is ranked 10th lowest division for the Disadvantage Index compared with a ranking of the 54th lowest for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index.   

Index of Relative Socio-economic Advantage/Disadvantage

The ranking of electoral divisions for this index displays a similar pattern to the ranking for the Disadvantage Index.  This is understandable since 12 of the 17 indicators in this index are also in the Advantage/Disadvantage Index.

The electoral division with the highest index score is Bradfield, followed by North Sydney and Warringah.

The six electoral divisions with the highest index scores are all metropolitan areas of Sydney and five of them are on the north shore with the remaining division in the eastern suburbs (Wentworth).

The top ten electoral divisions are all held by the Liberal Party and they comprise seven divisions in New South Wales (Bradfield, North Sydney, Warringah, Berowra, Wentworth, Mitchell, and Mackellar), two in Victoria (Kooyong and Higgins), and Ryan in Queensland.

Metropolitan electorates dominate the higher rankings. The top 34 ranked electorates are all metropolitan areas. The highest ranked non-metropolitan divisions are Macquarie (ranked 35th highest) and the adjoining provincial divisions of McPherson (ranked 45th highest) and Moncrieff (ranked 46th highest) on the Gold Coast.

The electoral division with the lowest index score is Wakefield, followed by Grey and Lyons.

The five electoral divisions with the lowest index scores are all rural areas and the bottom 30 ranked electoral divisions include 23 rural divisions. Only two of the bottom 30 ranked divisions are inner metropolitan divisions (Port Adelaide and Blaxland) and only two are outer metropolitan divisions (Fowler and Chifley).

The ten divisions with the lowest rankings comprise four divisions in South Australia (Wakefield, Grey, Port Adelaide and Barker), two in Tasmania (Lyons and Braddon), two in Queensland (Hinkler and Maranoa), Lingiari in the Northern Territory, and Fowler in New South Wales.

The 42 inner metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 1060 which is significantly above the overall average index score of 1006. The 45 outer metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 1019, also above the overall average. Provincial and rural divisions each have an average index score below the overall average. The 21 provincial divisions have an average index score of 982, and the 43 rural divisions have an average index score of 953.   

Index of Economic Resources

The electoral division with the highest index score is Mitchell, followed by Berowra and Bradfield. The five electoral divisions with the highest index scores are all on Sydney’s north shore.

The top ten ranked electoral divisions comprise seven divisions in New South Wales (Mitchell, Berowra, Bradfield, Mackellar, Warringah, North Sydney, and Cook), Moore in Western Australia, Ryan in Queensland, and Menzies in Victoria.

The top 20 ranked electoral divisions consist of 19 divisions held by the Liberal Party and only the division of Canberra (ranked 17th highest) is held by the ALP.

Metropolitan divisions dominate the higher rankings. Of the 30 electoral divisions with the highest index scores, 29 are inner metropolitan or outer metropolitan divisions. Wright, ranked 21st highest, is the highest ranked non-metropolitan division.

The electoral division with the lowest index score is Lingiari, followed by Grey and Braddon. The 10 divisions with the lowest rankings comprise four divisions in New South Wales (Blaxland, Cowper, Fowler and Page), three in South Australia (Grey, Port Adelaide and Wakefield), two in Tasmania (Braddon and Bass), and Lingiari in the Northern Territory.

Of the ten divisions with the lowest ranking, nine of them are also ranked in the bottom ten divisions for the Disadvantage Index, with the 10th lowest ranked division of Bass being ranked 21st lowest under the Disadvantage Index. The bottom ten ranked electoral divisions include six rural divisions. Eight of the bottom ten ranked divisions are held by the ALP.

The 45 outer metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 1031, which is above the overall average index score of 1007. The 41 inner metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 1019 which is above the overall average index score of 1007 (but not as relatively high as for the other three indexes). The Economic Resources Index is the only one where inner metropolitan divisions do not have the highest average score. The 21 provincial divisions have an average index score of 992, and the 43 rural divisions have an average index score of 979.   

Two divisions have a significantly lower ranking for the Economic Resources Index compared with the other three indexes. The electoral division of Melbourne is ranked 15th lowest for the Economic Resource Index but is ranked 127th lowest for Advantage/Disadvantage, 92nd lowest for Disadvantage, and 140th lowest for Education and Occupation. Similarly, the electoral division of Newcastle is ranked 13th lowest for the Economic Resource Index but it is ranked 66th lowest for Advantage/Disadvantage, 38th lowest for Disadvantage, and 89th lowest for Education and Occupation.       

Index of Education and Occupation

The electoral division with the highest index score is North Sydney, followed by Wentworth and Bradfield and all three are in inner metropolitan Sydney.

The top ten electoral divisions comprise five divisions in New South Wales (North Sydney, Wentworth, Bradfield, Sydney, and Warringah), three in Victoria (Kooyong, Higgins, and Melbourne Ports), Curtin in Western Australia, and Ryan in Queensland. Eight of the top ten ranked divisions are held by the Liberal Party.

The 30 electoral divisions with the highest index scores are all inner metropolitan or outer metropolitan area. Macquarie, ranked 40th highest, is the highest ranked non-metropolitan division.

The electoral division of Sydney, ranked 8th highest, has a significantly higher ranking than for the Disadvantage Index (37th highest) and the Economic Resources Index (91st highest).

The electoral division with the lowest ranking is Wakefield, followed by Braddon and Lyons.

The ten divisions with the lowest ranking comprise three divisions in South Australia (Wakefield, Grey, and Port Adelaide), three in New South Wales (Fowler, Chifley and Hunter), two in Tasmania (Braddon and Lyons), and two in Queensland (Hinkler and Longman).

The bottom ten ranked electoral divisions include five rural divisions. Of the ten divisions with the lowest rankings, eight are ALP seats.

The 41 inner metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 1075 which is significantly above the overall average index score of 998. The other three geographic categories have average index scores below the overall average. The 45 outer metropolitan divisions have an average index score of 992, the 21 provincial divisions have an average index score of 964, and the 43 rural divisions have an average index score of 946.   

The electoral division of Hunter is ranked 6th lowest, whereas its ranking for the other three indexes is significantly higher (ranked 29th lowest for Advantage/Disadvantage, 34th lowest for Disadvantage, and 55th lowest for Economic Resources).

Conclusion

Each index aims to capture a slightly different aspect of relative disadvantage and/or advantage and a number of variables are common to the four SEIFA indexes (with the exception that the Economic Resources Index and the Education and Occupation Index do not share any common variables).  Consequently many electoral divisions have a broadly similar ranking for each of the four SEIFA indexes although there will always be some degree of variation reflecting the different variables used to construct each index.

The 41 inner metropolitan electoral divisions have a higher than average index value for each of the four indexes while the 45 outer metropolitan division have a higher than average index value for three of the four indexes. In contrast, the group of 21 provincial divisions and the group of 43 rural divisions both have average SEIFA values below the overall average index value for each of the four indexes. The table below summarises these average index scores for each demographic classification. Figures in brackets show the number of seats in each demographic classification.

ALP held seats have an average index score slightly below the national average for each of the four indexes whereas Liberal Party held seats have an average index score above the national average for each of the four indexes. This difference is most apparent when looking at the bottom and top of the rankings. The top ten ranked divisions for the Advantage/Disadvantage Index, the Disadvantage Index, and the Economic Resources Index are all Liberal Party seats, while eight of the top ten ranked divisions for the Education and Occupation Index are held by the Liberal Party.  

The electoral divisions held by the Nationals have an average index score significantly below the national average for each of the four indexes.  This reflects the fact that eight of the nine electoral divisions held by the Nationals are rural divisions and rural divisions have a lower than average index score for each of the four indexes.
