Canberra's advantaged and disadvantaged areas mapped

The Canberra Region's most advantaged and disadvantaged areas have been identified by theĀ 2016 census data.

Duntroon is Canberra's most advantaged socioeconomic area, and Charnwood is among the most disadvantaged.

The data, released recently, also showed that, in the ACT region, Tumut, Braidwood and Queanbeyan's Karabar had scores in the lowest 10.

Canberra's most affluent suburbs are across the north and south, with Barton, Forrest, Crace, Fadden and Weetangera all in the top 10.

In a statement, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said the data could be used to "help governments, communities and businesses determine areas needing additional funding and improved services, identify potential business opportunities, and research the relationship between health and education outcomes and the socio-economic conditions of an area".
