Regional Wellbeing Survey 2013

  • Year: 2014
  • Author: Jacki Schirmer and Helen Berry
  • Publisher: MDBFutures and University of Canberra
  • Country: Australia

The wellbeing of people living in rural and regional areas of Australia is influenced by numerous factors, many of which are different to those experienced by people living in cities. Things like drought, floods, changing environmental health, new industries, changing land uses and migration of residents can all affect the wellbeing of rural and regional communities. Better understanding of wellbeing can support the development of strategies that improve wellbeing, resilience and adaptive capacity of people living in rural and regional Australia.

The Regional Wellbeing Survey was established in 2013 to better understand the wellbeing of people and communities in rural and regional Australia, and how different social, economic and environmental changes influence wellbeing. The survey will be repeated in successive years to
track how and why wellbeing changes.
