This report profiles five areas impacted by the 2019-20 bushfires and identified as having high levels of disadvantage. We present data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) regarding each region alongside findings from the NCOSS Mapping Economic Disadvantage in NSW resource.

Many more communities experiencing already high levels of disadvantage have been impacted by the bushfires than those profiled in this report. Detailed information, identifying poverty rates by location and for different demographic groups, for those bushfire impacted areas across the state can be accessed via updated NATSEM/NCOSS interactive maps at
