QTT - Five Yearly Projected Population (Medium Series) (SA2) 2011-2036

This dataset presents the 2013 Edition of the Queensland Government population projections (Medium Series). These projections represent usual resident populations only and exclude visitors and temporary residents.

These population projections have been prepared using the latest available information at the time of preparation. Complete accuracy of these projections should not be assumed. Variation above or below the figures provided is to be expected, because projections rely on the accuracy of the assumptions used, as well as the quality of data on which they are based.

For more information, please refer to the Data Source:

Please note the following assumptions:

  • Queensland total fertility rate of 1.95 in 2011-2012, declining over a five year period to 1.90, then held constant thereafter.
  • Average of low and high series life expectancy at birth.
  • Net interstate migration of 15,000 persons per annum.
  • Net overseas migration for Australia increasing to 250,000 by 2016-2017, then remaining constant thereafter.
  • Queensland share increasing from 19.4% to 22.0% over the projection period.
