Understanding the physical, social, economic and ecological aspects of urban settlements requires the availability of reliable and nationally consistent data which is essential to improve the environmental sustainability of cities and other urban areas, economic prosperity and quality of life. While urban settlements range from cities and smaller urban areas to households, a few major urban settlements host the vast proportion of the Australian population and a similar share of the nation’s production and consumption, economic activity and social interaction.
