Title: THE EFFECT OF AGRICULTURE ON COUNTRY TOWN POPULATION IN THE GRAZING AND WHEAT GROWING REGIONS OF NEW SOUTH WALES
Authors: Davidson, Bruce Robinson
Issue Date: 1976-12
Abstract: An attempt was made to identify the factors which determined the rate of growth of the populations of country towns in the grazing and wheat growing regions of New South Wales between 1958 and 1971. The town population increased even though farm population declined during the period studied. In the Wheat and Sheep Zone and on the Northern Tablelands the rate of growth of country town population appeared to be determined by the rate of growth in the gross revenue from agriculture. In all other regions agricultural factors appeared to have little effect on the rate of growth of country towns.
