"Country Matters - Social Atlas of Rural and Regional Australia" compares Australia's metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas with a focus on regional centres, populated coastal areas, populated inland areas and remote areas. In particular, population growth in our regional centres is greater than the Australian average, and there is a more evenly balanced ratio of men to women in non-metropolitan Australia.
