Summary This social atlas was developed with one objective in mind: to compile data on demographic and socioeconomic features and trends of rural and regional Australia that are not easily accessible to most users, translate them into user-friendly information, and thus contribute to more informed decision-making in the areas of natural resources and rural and regional development. The atlas contains 80 maps, providing snapshot (most current data) and recent trend information for 774 rural and regional areas across Australia, across four broad themes: population and demography; labour force and employment; income and income support; and other social aspects and features relevant to life in rural and regional Australia, such as education, health and housing, geographic isolation and regional socioeconomic disadvantage
