Forecasting slow growing areas for service provision


It's a common misconception that all metropolitan local government areas in Australia are rapidly growing - and many are - but a key use of population forecasts is understanding how communities will change in the future and what this means for service provision. All local councils, big or small, fast or slow growing, need this information as it provides the evidence base for the allocation of scarce resources.
