Abstract

Geographic characteristics and social conditions in rural and remote areas often mean greater difficulty and costs in terms of providing aged care services. This, in turn, inevitably causes concern over spatial equity in the distribution of aged care services. This paper analyses the distribution of aged care services by four geographic categories: capital cities, other metropolitan areas, rural areas and remote areas.
