It was recently revealed that the Australian population has expanded even further, but more figures have now been released that shed light on the changing demographic. The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) announced that the country’s female population has now reached 12million – and men aren’t far off meeting this milestone.
In fact, another 96,300 men are needed before they catch up with women, therefore putting the ratio of men to women at 99 to 100.
“With the exception of Western Australia and the Northern Territory, all states and territories have more females than males.
“Western Australia has 102 males for every 100 females and the Northern Territory has 112 males for every 100 females,” said ABS director of demography Beidar Cho.
The ABS noted that Victoria’s population has largely been affected by net overseas migration. One of the challenges now is to make sure that there is sufficient real estate in Carnegie and other types of property to give access to quality accommodation.
This has been emphasised by the Housing Industry Association (HIA), which stressed that building needs to keep pace if people are to find the homes they need. The group confirmed that states along the eastern seaboard have largely been the standout economic performers – and this needs to continue well into the future.
Victoria was identified by the HIA as a hub of population growth, especially when migration figures are taken into account. People are attracted to the enviable lifestyle, job opportunities and other drawcards, so it’s hardly surprising that so many people want to live there.
If you’re one of them, make sure you speak to a real estate agent in Carnegie. Matt Hurlston and his team are here to help and make sure you find the home best suited to your individual needs.
