In late September, the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released data for the 12-months (March ’16 - March ’17) population change for each Australian capital city. Population growth is one of many drivers of property prices - everyone needs shelter and a place to live, right?

Here are the percentage increases per state: 

  • Victoria: 2.4%
  • Australian Capital Territory: 1.8% 
  • New South Wales: 1.6% 
  • Queensland: 1.6%
  • Western Australia: 0.7% 
  • South Australia: 0.6%
  • Tasmania: 0.6% 
  • Northern Territory: 0.1% 
  • Other Territories: 1.6%*

As we can see, Victoria is charging ahead with a 12-month increase of 2.4%, followed closely by the ACT with an increase of 1.8%. Overall, Australia’s population grew by 1.6% during the 12 month period.
