The focus of the 2003-04 State of the Regions report is on how ageing, migration and population growth impact on the economic potential of regions and the revenue raising capacity of local government. The fundamental message from this year's report is that for many regions strong positive population growth with a broad based age composition will be vital for economic growth.
