Regional Population Growth

Approximately 60% of Australia's 627 Local Government Areas (LGAs) gained population in the year to June 1999. Most (72%) of Australia's population growth occurred in the State and Territory capital cities. At June 1999, 64% of Australians resided in capital cities compared to 63% in 1994. Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth were each home to 73% of their respective State populations compared to 63% for Sydney, 46% each for Brisbane and Darwin and 41% for Hobart.

Further information is available in Regional Population Growth, Australia, 1998-99 (Cat. No. 3218.0) which contains Statistical Local Area and Local Government Area population estimates.
