This is the first comparative study of spatial changes in population, jobs and commuting patterns within Australia's largest cities. It focuses on recent patterns of change in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, while also presenting an overview of change in other capital cities and regional cities between 2001 and 2011. The report identifies some common trends and differences across the cities, and investigates the extent to which these recent spatial changes match up to the stated strategic planning goals for the four largest cities.
