  1. Hi Glenn
    Really like the updates information!
    The latest details on SEIFA are great, except the reference to Sydney’s Northern Beaches is incorrect I think?
    All the top areas are within Sydney’s North Shore – the Northern Beaches Council / area includes: Manly, Warringah, Pittwater. The areas you refer to aren’t in the Northern Beaches?

    • Thanks Paul, I think some of those are still broadly termed the Northern Beaches, though not in the new Northern Beaches LGA (eg. Mosman). But I’ve changed the reference to be more broadly to Sydney’s northern suburbs.

  2. Nice overview article!

    “Generally, larger areas have more diversity of socio-economic characteristics within them, and so will appear closer to either end of the distribution than in the middle.”

    I think this is backwards.
