What pull factors and push factors can you identify?

Cam E's curator insight, April 8, 2014 1:13 PM

I wonder if these ratings take "horrible spiders hiding in your car and shoes waiting to strike" into account, but in all honesty this is not much of a problem in the cities of Australia. Tourists and foreign businesses in the area do have to worry about the occasional Drop Bear (make sure to look this one up), but in all seriousness Australia has an interesting take on things, compulsory voting ensures that citizen participation in the government is always high, and health scores far outstrip many other industrialized regions.
