City spends more on housing and the bush on transport
Households in urban Australia spent more on housing while rural households spent more on transport, according to analysis of regional Household Expenditure Survey data by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
In 2003-04, households in rural Australia spent $160 on average a week on transport, with households in urban areas spending around $136 a week. In rural Australia, spending on transport accounted for around one fifth of total spending on goods and services.
Other findings in today's release are:
Major Urban = areas with populations of 100,000 or more people. Other Urban = areas with populations of 1,000 to 99,999 people. Rural = areas with populations less than 1,000 people.
Further information is in Perspectives on Regional Australia: Household Expenditure throughout Australia, 2003-04 (cat. no. 1380.0.55.003).
