In and Out

An interactive visualisation of disadvantage at a community-level in Australia

This interactive visualisation is an extension of the report Spatial and Community Dimensions of Income Poverty (Payne and Samarage, 2020) developed as part of the Breaking Down Barriers research series by the Melbourne Institute into understanding and overcoming disadvantage. This interactive visualisation has been created based on analysis, conducted at a community level, using Australian Census data of individuals and households.

This page visually depicts the classification of communities in Australia based on national poverty rankings over a five year or ten year period to 2016, the year of the last Australian Census. The Sankey diagram (below) depicts transitions of communities, over a select time period, which have shown an increase in the number of households experiencing poverty (red); a decrease in the number of households experiencing poverty (green); or no change in the number of households experiencing poverty (blue).
