ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication is the fifth in a series with a particular focus on regional Australia. It uses data from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing to outline the extent of population turnover across Australia, at the Statistical Local Area (SLA) geographical level, between August 2001 and August 2006.
The publication includes SLAs with the highest and lowest estimated population turnover as well as case studies of selected SLAs in each state and territory. The case studies illustrate how Census data can be used to investigate diferences in the characteristics of people arriving in, departing from, and staying in a particular SLA.
This analysis excludes unincorporated SLAs and SLAs with a population of less than 500 usual residents.
