Young people are proving to be the driving force behind regional population growth according to a new study, with more Millennials and Gen-Xers moving out of capital cities.

The insights from the March quarter Regional Movers Index report, showed young people accounted for the largest proportion of movers to the highest growth regional areas.

The number of people moving to regional areas rose by 16.6 percent to reach a new five-year high in the March quarter, nearly double the levels before the pandemic.

Locally the Loxton-Waikerie area recorded the largest recent jump, with the Mid-Murray & Renmark-Paringa areas not far behind.
