Survey highlights rural health problems

A survey has highlighted the divide between city dwellers and their rural counterparts in the areas of health, unemployment and wealth.

The nation-wide survey of 50,000 people by Roy Morgan found country people have more health issues and are more likely to be overweight compared to people in the cities.

The report says rural people are more than 8% more likely to have some health issues, compared to people in metropolitan areas.
