Disadvantage Needs Risk Ranks (DNR)

The Disadvantage-Need-Risk (DNR) scores and rank are a method of identifying target populations and locations across South Australia and have been developed so that DCSI services can be planned to provide maximum support for those most in need. The DNR scores and ranks are a composite of:

Disadvantage: the Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage, part of the Socio-Economic Index For Areas (SEIFA) developed by the ABS.

Need (or Sentinel Indicators): For the Vulnerable Families with Children target group the Sentinel Indicators identified were: jobless families with children under 15, divorce or separation, women smoking during pregnancy, Centrelink payments, substantiated child protection notifications. For Youth at Risk target group the Sentinel Indicators were: rates of teen pregnancy, student absenteeism, young people receiving unemployment benefits, youth Justice Orders, single parent families.

Risk: the proportion of the target population within the general population.
