Comparison of ABS SEIFA and Hunter Disadvantage Scores] The Hunter disadvantage index accounted for 31.5% of the overall variance, which is comparable to the 32.5% accounted for by the ABS SEIFA. Both indexes indicated a large overall disadvantage factor, however the Hunter Disadvantage scores had a relatively higher loading from the variables of One Parent with Dependent Children and Government Rent. The paper’s second aim is to create an index of disadvantage for children. The Australian Census does not collect sufficient items to allow direct assessment of childhood disadvantage. The paper therefore assesses the proprietary of combining the Hunter Disadvantage scores (which is an estimate of the proportion of disadvantage borne by people in the area) with the proportion of children (aged 0-8 years old) as a targeting measure. The third aim for the paper is to include information available outside the census on disadvantage such as health data and crime rates. Finally, the paper examines the different geographical regions that are available for targeting, by proposing a hierarchical structure to combine the data available at different levels.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:29:34 AEDT ]]> Creating a database to facilitate multilevel analyses of mental health determinants and outcomes in rural and remote areas https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:5451 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:48:10 AEDT ]]> Spatial assessment of crime https://ogma.newcastle.edu.au/vital/access/ /manager/Repository/uon:6375 Sat 24 Mar 2018 07:45:50 AEDT ]]>
