About this map

This map shows current place-based initiatives around Australia. This is not intended as an exhaustive list of place-based work in Australia, rather a growing collection.  

Dropping off the Edge (DOTE) is a study undertaken by Jesuit Social Services’ Centre for Just Places that identifies pockets of entrenched location-based disadvantage in Australian communities. Measuring 37 indicators across seven domains of social wellbeing, health, community safety, economic, education, environmental and intergenerational outcomes it provides a picture of where disadvantage is concentrated, how various forms of disadvantage overlap, and how disadvantage becomes entrenched and difficult to escape in Australian communities.
