WA - A century of major population changes
Western Australia's population underwent dramatic change during the twentieth century, according to a special Centenary of Federation report released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). The population increased tenfold in size and, due to falling birth and death rates, also aged significantly.
The special report contained in the publication Western Australian Statistical Indicators, September Quarter 2001 traces shifts in the profile of Western Australia's population since 1901, including changes in fertility, life expectancy, mortality, marriage, divorce and migration. It shows that:
A second report provides estimates of private new capital expenditure in Western Australia classified by Australian-owned and majority-foreign-owned businesses for the financial years 1997-1998 to 1999-2000. The publication also tracks key economic developments in Western Australia, including State final demand, the Consumer Price Index, consumption, private new capital expenditure, business expectations, construction, finance, mineral exploration, tourism and the labour market.
Full details are in Western Australian Statistical Indicators, September Quarter 2001 (cat. no. 1367.5). If you wish to purchase a copy of this publication contact the ABS bookshop in your capital city.
