Regional divide? A study of income inequality in Australia

  • Year: 2001
  • Author: Lloyd, R; Harding, A; Hellwig, O
  • Journal Name: Sustaining Regions
  • Journal Number: Vol.1, No.1
  • Country: Australia

A regional analysis of incomes in Australia is presented, covering average household income by region, changes in average household income by region, average household income by state and region, and household incomes in local government areas. An attempt is then made to answer the question 'Is there a growing income inequality between regions'? The results indicate that 'regional Australia' is not uniformly disadvantaged and not uniformly declining. The biggest losers appear to be the residents of small rural towns rather than residents of rural areas.
