Neighbourhood Employment and Housing Precarity (NEHP) Index
The Neighbourhood Employment and Housing Precarity (NEHP) Index is a pilot tool that was developed to better understand the impacts of COVID-19. It is constructed from a combination of six employment, housing and financial indicators that affect people's capacity to remain in place and distance from others. As such, the Index ranks neighbourhoods within Melbourne (Significant Urban Areas) according to people's ability to comply with movement restrictions. It is intended to assist authorities in developing appropriate and equitable policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and future infectious disease outbreaks.
