Re-ranking of Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (SEIFA)

Our paper is finally out.
We examined whether Socio-Economic Indexes for Areas (paricularly, the Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage – IRSD)  should be based on a more locally sensitve indicator, in contrast to the existing national and state-based rankings. This aims to develop more suitable rankings, esp. for regional areas.
