    Selected Living Cost Indexes, Australia, June 2015
    These Living Cost Indexes (LCIs) are designed to measure the impact of price change on the disposable incomes of selected household types. The four household types that have been identified as being appropriate for the construction of these living cost indexes are employee households, age pensioner households, other government transfer recipient households, and self-funded retiree households.

    The Pensioner and Beneficiary Living Cost Index (PBLCI) is a measure of the effect of changes in price on the out-of-pocket living expenses of age pensioner households and other government transfer recipient households. The PBLCI is used by the government to inform policy decisions relating to the indexation of base pension rates.

    The Selected Living Cost Indexes have been constructed using an outlays approach, compared with an acquisitions approach which is used in the CPI to measure price inflation over time for the household sector as a whole.

    Research Paper: Constructing an Experimental Household-Level Socio-Economic Index of Disadvantage Using GSS Data, August 2015
    This paper explored the feasibility of constructing an experimental socio-economic index of disadvantage at the household level using General Social Survey (GSS) data. The interest in finer level indexes arises from the need for detailed disadvantage information to complement broad measures such as area based indexes. The GSS covers a broad range of socio-economic variables which enables the incorporation of many dimensions of disadvantage. The 2010 and 2014 GSS datasets were analysed separately to construct an index of disadvantage for each period. Both simple and complex measures of disadvantage were explored. The simple measures consisted of counts of indicators and domains of disadvantage while the complex method involved using weights derived from principal component analysis to combine the variables to derive a summary or composite measure of disadvantage.
