Canberra Region Joint Organisation

Components of population change

The greatest population change for the Canberra Region Joint Organisation is forecast for the period from 2032 to 2036, which is expected to have a net increase of 17,738 people.

There are two ways in which populations can change, through net migration and/or through natural increase (births minus deaths). Some areas are more driven by one or other of these factors. Migration is largely driven by housing development, whereas natural increase is a function of the age of the population.
