On average, Tasmanians living in the Greater Hobart-Southern Region have a higher income than those living in other Regions. However, they can expect to face more expensive housing costs, with median rent and home loan repayments being higher than other Regions of the state. Persons living in the Mersey-Lyell Region can expect lower median incomes, but cheaper housing costs, than other Tasmanians.
