In 2013, CESE developed a new measure of school socio-economic status, the Family Occupation and Education Index (FOEI), to be used as the basis of the equity loading for socio-economic background in the department’s new Resource Allocation Model. This technical report details the methodology used for the construction of FOEI in 2013.

Published in Research report

During the development of the 2013 Family Occupation and Education Index (FOEI), CESE commissioned the National Institute for Applied Statistics Research Australia (NIASRA) at the University of Wollongong to review and validate the methodology underpinning FOEI.

This report from NIASRA discusses the technical issues associated with missing data and the regression modelling underpinning FOEI, and recommends the statistical methods to deal with these issues.

A forthcoming CESE technical report will further detail the methodology used for the construction of FOEI in 2013.
