Abstract The purpose of this paper is to examine the characteristics of health professionals who migrated to rural
and remote South Australia and the Northern Territory (Australia’s ‘spine’) between 2001 and 2011.
Data from the Census of Population and Housing are analysed for evidence of the impact of major
events of that period (drought, mining boom, Northern Territory Emergency Response, Global
Financial Crisis etc.) on migration patterns and evidence of life course and personality influences on
those who migrated into the spine, and where they chose to work. The paper argues that life course and
personality are somewhat neglected factors in research into recruitment and retention of rural health
professionals, and the evidence from the Census provides some insights into how a more
comprehensive life course, personality, and migration model might be constructed and examined.
