Short and sharp this week. A data dump really.
Australia’s population growth is returning to pre-Covid levels. Well, it isn’t quite there yet, but it is unlikely to take much longer. Sometime later this year if you ask me.
Chart 1 shows that annual rate of Australia’s population growth, whilst chart 2 shows that change on a quarterly basis.
Table 1 outlines that population components by state or territory and also for Australia for fiscal 2022.
Table 2 outlines the annual population growth results for each state and territory over the past five years.
All locales – with the exception of Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia – are currently down on past averages. SA and WA are on par, whilst Queensland is clearly growing faster at present that it was just a few years ago.
