Regional Wellbeing Survey
With thousands of people across Australia surveyed each year, the Regional Wellbeing Survey is one of the largest annual surveys examining wellbeing and quality of life in Australia’s rural and regional areas.
First conducted in 2013, it examines how the wellbeing of people in rural and regional communities is changing, and the impacts of events such as drought, bushfire, and floods on liveability. The results of the survey help to provide insights that support the development of strategies to build wellbeing, resilience and adaptive capacity across Australia.
