City of Gold Coast
Gold Coast City Council needed to identify and describe vulnerable communities within Gold Coast City for the purpose of targeting specialised approaches to support people as part of disaster preparation.
By incorporating multiple demographic information at SA2 level to describe "vulnerability" (such as homelessness, disability, low income households, older lone persons etc), we were able to give council decision makers a clear idea as to where their most vulnerable populations reside and how factors of vulnerability differ geographically.
Our work provided a clear guide to the unique vulnerability profile of different areas, allowing Council to confidently establish a targeted disaster management plan.
