Mr Druitt con­tin­ues to be one of the most dis­ad­van­taged sub­urbs in Syd­ney, ac­cord­ing to a re­port re­leased by Je­suit So­cial Ser­vices and Catholic So­cial Ser­vices yesterday. The anal­y­sis mapped disad­van­tage across the coun­try based on so­cial in­di­ca­tors such as crim­i­nal con­vic­tions, ac­cess to the in­ter­net, un­em­ploy­ment, do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and lim­ited ed­u­ca­tion, and found disad­van­tage in Mt Druitt was even more en­trenched than eight years ago.
