Although Sydney is often characterised by a high quality of life, this prosperity is not shared by all. Based on secondary data analysis, this report shows that there are individual and community problems in a number of key areas: housing, income, health, education, crime and accessibility.

The Common Cause project aims to help create a more inclusive community and address issues of social disadvantage by making freely available an improved information framework to all interested parties who seek to respond to the current and emerging social needs of Greater Sydney. The report maps the needs of individuals, social groups and the community to allow better planning and resourcing of community initiatives and services on the basis of evidence.
