Australia’s latest population growth figures for the year ending December 2013 were released by the ABS last week.
There are some surprising results. Propertyology has analysed them for you here…
- Western Australia continues to be attract the highest overall population growth rate (2.9%), followed by Victoria (1.9%), Queensland and Northern Territory (both 1.7%) and New South Wales (1.5%)
- Victoria and Queensland lead the way with the highest net increase of interstate migration
- 11,219 more residents left New South Wales than arrived (Sydney having the most expensive housing costs would be a common cause)
- Overseas migration was highest in New South Wales (71,446), Victoria (62,337) and Western Australia (45,401)
