This report documents the differences in educational outcomes between rural, regional and remote Australia and urban Australia.

The report then quantifies the economic impact of these disparities in educational outcomes. By linking education to human capital formation—one of the key components of economic output along with physical capital—we estimate the shortfall in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) due to these differences.
