Advantaged an disadvantaged suburbs and towns near Geelong

from w
Some stats came out that reveal advantage and disadvantage in towns and suburbs throughout Australia. Here is the data about local areas - in vicinity of Geelong.  No real surprises there except that Bells Beach came out very high - though how many people actually live there I wonder. I am surprised about Colac East coming out as problematic because the time we spent weekends in Colac we 'judged' the people to be fairly well off in Colac area. Stats can be deceiving of course.  This post is taken from Bay FM Geelong radio station. In the article they didn't give how they arrived at the results.

 a list of the most disadvantaged areas
 in the state.A new method of measuring
 social disadvantage allocates a score
 to suburbs, then ranks them from
 lowest to highest. Toorloo Arm, near
 Lakes Entrance, and with a population
of just 127, tops the list with a score
of 580. Colac East is second, with Laverton North. In fourth place followed
 by Norlane in fifth. Whittington also makes it into the top twenty after being
 named in 19th spot. Corio is 41st with Thomson 42nd. Newcomb is in
103rd place, Bell Park is 126th and Mount Pleasant is at 129. At the opposite
