The new report from The Australia Institute, Population Growth in Australia, reveals:

·         Population growth rate has increased above historic trends, largely due to immigration.

·         The ABS predicts population will be around 40 million in 2061 and up to 70 million by 2101.

·         Almost all of these people will live in major cities.

·         Australia has the fastest population growth of major developed countries.

·         Despite rapid population growth, discussion around population policy and planning is almost non-existent.
