Similar Communities Model

The Similar Communities Model helps people understand which communities are more and less like theirs, across eight different social factors. It can help you take actions based on learnings from similar communities.

This data set is helping many organisations with research what programs, initiatives and services are being implemented in similar communities as well as making connections with collective impact organisations operating in those similar communities to learn and share knowledge.

Try the free Similar Communities Model search tool to quickly discover which communities are most and least like yours within your state and nationally.

Seer’s free model displays communities nationally at a Local Government Area (LGA) level. Seer’s Plus plan includes access to the full dataset which allows you to search at SA2, SA3, postcode and LGA levels and create your own Insights from the data.

This model was created as part of our early work with Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project. Read the story behind the creation of the Similar Communities model here.
