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.
Please see our article in the Journal of Australian Population Studies.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS Ralf on the publication of this important study!!
    It’s great you have a link to the paper on your website (just tweak the 2 words in the title of the journal) The editor in me couldn’t resist flagging that. 🙂
    I’m so sorry I didn’t reply to your kind text message.
    I am, probably like oodles of Melbournians, running on fumes.
    I cannot fathom how you & Anila managed to not only Move House
    but purchase and RENOVATE a house!?!?!
    How on earth did achieve all of that? I am in awe.
    It is incredibly stressful to relocate irrespective of the distance.
    I hope we can catch up and get Danyal & Aidan reunited over the
    summer holidays.
    Stuart has been in Melbourne. We saw him briefly last night.
    He’s visiting his Mum every day – she’s in care in Heidelberg – and
    departs, I think, for Queensland on Saturday.
    You must find it very stressful having such a huge geographic
    distance between you and your Dad/family.
    I do hope you manage to get back to Germany when you
    feel it is safe to do so. That’s probably the equivalent of
    “how long is a piece of string”? The 4th wave is looking catastrophic.
    Think we need to make the most of this summer…..
    Take Care,

    1. Hi Mae,

      Love the comment – keep it up!
      …and thanks, fixed up the 2 tyops!
      We should catch up soon, when the holidays start – chasing sting rays in the bay!

      Talk soon,
