This report presents a socioeconomic profile of irrigators in the Murray-Darling Basin based on the most recent data collected in the survey for the 2008-09 financial year. The report is the latest in a series of reports on irrigation in the Murray-Darling Basin to provide policymakers, irrigation communities and resource managers with an integrated physical, financial and socioeconomic dataset that can be used for monitoring, evaluating and reporting changes in the irrigation sector.
