Population projections

Queensland’s future population 2008

This report presents the results of the 2008 series population projections and contains analysis of some of the implications of the projected future population growth, such as local variations in future population size and age structure. The appendixes to the report contain projections to 2031 for Queensland, statistical divisions, planning regions and local government areas (LGAs). Low, medium and high series projections are shown for reformed LGAs (based on the boundaries from March 2008). Medium series projections are available for pre-reformed LGAs (based on the boundaries prior to March 2008). Projected population by broad age groups for reformed LGAs is also available.

The following appendixes, contain historical statistics back to 1981 and projections to 2031 for pre-reformed and reformed LGAs:
