A report from the Regional Australian Institute (RAI) shows that the number of people returning from big cities is increasing, and the return of young people is also a boon for the locals. "In the past 5 years, the number of people has been increasing, so this is not a new phenomenon. But we still don't know whether the working population is the pure driving force for the increase in the number of returnees from remote areas." RAI Research and Policy General Manager Jack Archer told Guardian Australia Said.

RAI said that between 2010 and 2011, more than 135,000 people left the capital cities and turned to remote areas, which also increased the number of people in remote areas in Australia by 10.

The number of people leaving Sydney at each age is the most in capital cities, and among all age groups, the number of people leaving between 24 and 44 is the most, with 7,753 people. Most people turned to Hunter and the Southeast.

There may be some "push and pull" factors. The increase in the cost of living in cities has caused many people to return to their hometowns. They can buy larger houses in their hometowns with much less loans than in the cities. At the same time, you can be closer to your family. "In remote areas, less than 4% of people spent more than A$55 to buy a house. But in Sydney, 33% of people exceeded this number," the report said.

In addition, there may be resource factors that stimulate returning home, such as in Western Australia.
