Abstract

The AA examine the socio-economic disadvantage in an ‘advantaged’ Australian urban centre in Canberra. To do so, they use the Socio-economic Index for Individuals (SEIFI) to quantify socio-economic status (SES) at an individual level for 15–64 year-old Australians. They show that there is considerable diversity) at a very fine level of geography in 2006, a unique pattern in Australia. They also demonstrate that that 95 between 65–per cent of the ACT's disadvantaged population are masked within areas ranked as advantaged, depending on the index and level of spatial aggregation. The results suggest that the use of Socio-economic Indexes for Areas as a proxy for individual level disadvantage is highly problematic at both a theoretical and practical level, and necessitates further development of an individual- or household-level index
