  • Brighton - Portville was the fastest-growing SA2 (in that it had the strongest growth rate) in Tasmania between 2006 and 2016, up by 40%. This was followed by Old Beach - Otago and Margate - Snug (both 32%).
  • Of the SA2s outside of Greater Hobart, those with the largest growth were Huonville - Franklin in the state's south-east and Port Sorell on the north-west coast (both 1,200 people).
