Summary information by geographic area

Figure 7 displays a summary sheet of information for each geographic area included in this report, including population characteristics and drive time results.

Note: Figure 7 shows the distribution of the targeted screening population by Remoteness Area and Section of State, for context. While Remoteness Areas are based on the road distance to different-sized urban centres, the Section of State structure categorises communities on the basis of the local population size.

For example, Darwin, an urban centre with over 100,000 usual residents in 2021, is classified as Major urban in terms of Section of State (the top urban category), but Outer regional in terms of remoteness, due to its long distance from the nearest urban centre with over 250,000 people.
