Small area measures of child disadvantage are a very recent development in understanding child well-being both within Australia and internationally. This project aims to develop, test and analyse small area measures of social exclusion risk for Australia s children and young people. The project will broaden and deepen understanding of the distribution of child disadvantage, using a social exclusion framework and building on an initial body of work developed by NATSEM. The project will mesh technical knowledge about the development of local area indices with conceptual understandings of child and youth well-being, disadvantage and social exclusion to develop new knowledge about the differences in life chances of young Australians.
