    Abstract

    This paper presents theEmployment Vulnerable Index (EVI) V2.0, an indicator that identifies thosesuburbs and localities that have higher proportions of the types of jobsthought to be at risk in the current economic climate. The EVI was first devisedat the onset of the global financial crisis in response to the concerns of thepotential for widespread disruption to the Australian labour markets. Thispaper updates the EVI for current conditions and ranks localities according totheir risk of experiencing significant job losses in the event of a furthercontraction of the Australian economy. In particular, high risk red alert localities,identified as those at greatest risk of major job losses, are further analysedas either existing or emerging places of disadvantage.
