FACTBase 38 - Economic stress in Perth: a matter of geography

Research output: Book/ReportOther output


This FACTBase bulletin explores economic stress across Perth and Peel Statistical Local Areas (SLAs) between 2008 and 2012. Adopting a similar methodology
to FACTBase 2 (Tonts, 2009), an index of economic stress is used to highlight local geographies of poverty and disadvantage at the SLA level (rather than the postcode level of FACTBase 2). This discussion adds to more recent FACTBase bulletins highlighting rising income spatial inequality and wealth across the Perth and Peel region in the context of WAs post resources boom and the global financial crisis.
