Despite the substantial amount of research focusing on social inclusion and exclusion, both in Australia and internationally, there are considerable gaps in the literature that limit its utility for policy development purposes. In particular, these relate to the measurement of social capital, social inclusion and social exclusion, and the influence of social capital on social inclusion.

Both of these gaps are addressed by the Measuring social inclusion and exclusion in Northern Adelaide' Project. This has involved the development of a model that provides a range of indicators of social inclusion and exclusion that enables the measurement of change over time and promotes an increased understanding of the influence of social capital on social inclusion and exclusion. The measures developed are designed to be of use to Government in its planning and implementation of social inclusion initiatives in Northern Adelaide, and more broadly, to inform social inclusion policy development, implementation and evaluation.
