Net regional internal migration (RIME) is the net gain or loss of population through the movement of people from one location to another within Australia. Net regional overseas migration (ROME) is the net gain or loss of population through immigration to or emigration from Australia. RIME and ROME are prepared for sub-state regions and capture moves over each financial year from 2016-17 on an annual basis.
