The results of the University of Canberra 2015 Regional Wellbeing Survey have been released. The annual report measures the subjective wellbeing of people and communities living outside Australia’s major cities. It also examines the resilience of rural and regional residents and the liveability of their communities, and looks at how rural and regional Australians are experiencing a wide range of changes occurring in their communities.
This is the first report examining the results of the 2015 Regional Wellbeing Survey to be released, and focuses on wellbeing, liveability, and resilience. Further reports will be released from the 2015 survey, including reports focusing on experiences of drought, the wellbeing of farmers, natural resource management, and water reform.
The report can be downloaded from the University of Canberra website.
