The State of Australian Cities 2012 was launched by The Hon Anthony Albanese MP, Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, on 4 December 2012.
The report brings together current research and data including available data from the 2011 Census of Population and Housing to present a comprehensive snapshot of Australian cities.
This is the third in a series of annual Australian Government publications reporting on the progress of Australian cities towards the goals and objectives of the National Urban Policy. The previous two editions, State of Australian Cities 2010 and State of Australian Cities 2011, have together been downloaded close to 2 million times.
State of Australian Cities 2012 follows the structure of the previous two editions. The report details changes in urban population and settlement and examines indicators relating to productivity, sustainability and liveability. The report concludes with a discussion of governance in Australia’s major cities and, for the first time, an evaluation of progress in implementing the National Urban Policy.
