How is Western Australia's population changing?

Please join our head population forecaster - Matthew Deacon and the .id team for the WA launch of our small area forecasts (SAFi).

The development of these forecasts for the entire state was no small task! With around 3,000 small geographic areas across the state, our forecasts provide the most detailed data available and support a wide range of strategic planning decisions.

Some of interesting findings that emerged include:

  • Western Australia is expected to continue its reign as the fastest growing state.
  • The population of Greater Perth is projected to increase from 1.83 million in 2011 to 2.35 million in 2021. This increase represents 82 per cent of the total population increase for Western Australia.
  • A slowdown in mining projects is likely to see more pressure on the labour force and unemployment may rise. As a result, we have factored in a lower share of overseas migration to WA. We expect a net addition of 32K in the medium to long term, and a slowdown in the interstate migration gain (2K) in the future.
  • An expected slowing of population growth over the forecast period, slowing progressively from an annual average of 2.7% in the 5-years ending 2016 to 1.5% in 2036.
  • Wanneroo is expected to lead residential development with an average of 3,100 additional dwellings each year. Within Wanneroo development will be concentrated in Tamala Park, Alkimos, and Eglinton and around Wanneroo township.
  • The rapid growth in Pilbara-Kimberley is expected to slow considerably over the next 3-years.
  • Serpentine-Jarrahdale is expected to retain the fastest population growth in Perth, averaging 4.8% p.a. between 2014-36.
Please join us as we delve into the details of these population forecasts and the suburb by suburb impact that they may have. We look forward to seeing you there.
