Exploring HELP’s Socio-economic Status Index
Date: Thursday, April 2, 2015 – Time: 1:00PM to 2:30PM
In the most recent wave of EDI results across BC, the percentage of neighbourhood children who are vulnerable on one or more scales ranges from 4% to 56%. What accounts for such large differences across BC neighbourhoods? Does it relate to varying rates of poverty or education or housing costs or occupations or family structure or other socioeconomic/demographic factors? This webinar will explain how we look at all of these potential influences, using data from the Census, and determine the most important ones. We call this the HELP Socio-economic Status (SES) Index. Join Joseph Dunn, Provincial Director, Success by 6 BC, and Barry Forer, HELP Research Methodologist, to find out how we use the SES Index to study gradients in vulnerability, explore regional differences and identify off-diagonal communities – those unusual neighbourhoods that are doing worse or better than the Index predicts.
Please Note - Space is limited and registration is required for this free webinar. Participants will receive an email with details for accessing the webinar following registration and confirmation.
Who should attend the webinar?
Success by 6, Children First and Early Years Community Development Coordinators are encouraged to participate in the webinar, as well as those who are supporting the engagement of communities in regard to EDI research, knowledge translation and community Early Years planning.
