29/05/2008 Note: Three additional tables have been released in the SEIFA 2006 product range. The first table contains SEIFA indexes for State Suburb Codes. The other two tables are illustrative tools describing the population distributions of Local Government Areas and 2007 Commonwealth Electoral Divisions.
Users of SEIFA datacubes are advised to carefully read the accompanying Information Paper and Technical Manual:
2039.0.55.001 Technical Manual: Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA) - Technical Paper
The SEIFA indexes are available in Microsoft Excel spreadsheet format. These spreadsheets have been optimised for use in Microsoft Excel and may lose functionality in other spreadsheet packages.
A separate downloadable spreadsheet is available for each of four geographical areas:
Each spreadsheet contains the four SEIFA indexes that have been created for that geographical area, each on separate worksheets. There is also a summary worksheet containing information on all four indexes for that geographical area. The worksheet for each index shows:
SEIFA Population Distributions for Larger Areas
In 2006 SEIFA indexes have not been created for larger geographical areas, such as:
Instead, an interactive spreadsheet is available that shows the distribution of SEIFA scores within these areas. This spreadsheet shows the distribution of people who are usual residents on Census Night (rather than the distribution of CDs). For each larger area, the spreadsheet includes both tabular and graphical information for each of the four indexes.
For each index a particular geographic area can be selected, and the tool will show the population distribution by CD-level scores. The distribution can be directly compared to the distribution for Australia.
An additional spreadsheet is expected to be release subsequently. This spreadsheet will provide information for State Suburbs (SSC).
