Population growth hotspots can now be identified faster than ever in Australia, with the Regional Movers Index, developed by the Regional Australia Institute (RAI) in partnership with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA).

The Regional Movers Index presents fresh analysis of movements between Australia’s regions and capital cities. The Index updates the trend identified in the RAI’s 2019 Big Movers report – that in recent decades more people have been moving from Australia’s capital cities to regions than in the opposite direction.

  • The Index is powered by CBA data from relocations amongst its 16 million customers.
  • Quarterly and annual changes are presented in the Index.
  • This Index is an invaluable resource for both the public and private sectors.
  • By tracking people movements, it enables early identification of growth trends, and flags places emerging as hot spots needing fresh thinking on housing and infrastructure.
