WHAT IS THE REGIONAL WELLBEING SURVEY?

Worldwide, many nations and organisations — including the United Nations, the OECD, and more than 50 countries — are starting to measure social progress using measures that go beyond economic growth. This is because it is increasingly understood that economic growth alone doesn’t guarantee a good quality of life. We need to understand how liveable, safe and friendly communities are, if they have good access to key services and infrastructure, and if they are welcoming and inclusive. In other words, we need to know if they provide a good life for the people who live in them, as well as producing economic growth.

Often there’s not much information to help us understand quality of life — particularly for rural and remote regions. Since 2013, the Regional Wellbeing team at the University of Canberra have been asking people

across Australia, in remote, rural and urban regions, about the liveability of their community, their wellbeing, and their ability to cope with challenging times.

We produce a wide range of reports, as well as data tables showing the latest survey data for regions right across Australia, and for specific groups including farmers. Many organisations use our data to track quality of life in their region or industry — check out who is using the survey data. Researchers can also apply to access our data set, if they are able to meet our strict confidentiality and privacy requirements — find out more here.
