Todays Crikey carries a story on regions of high social disadvantage in Australia. Not surprisingly, an Indigenous community in the NT took the grand prize (low wages, low education, high unemployment etc).
It also listed the least disadvantaged areas and a state by state breakdown. The ACT had Kingston as the 37453 (or 5th from the bottom topped by Corio in Vic, eastern burbs of Syd and the miners mansions on the coast in South Perth) on the list of least disadvataged areas in the country.
For disadvantaged areas, ranked 320th over all and well up the list of disadvantaged areas is Turner, just north of Civic. Admittedly, it rates far better than the other State winners, but to class it alongside the rough ‘burbs of western sydney and Indigenous communities in QLD, SA, NT and WA is a bit of an eye opener.
