Murray Shire CouncilPopulation forecast

Welcome to the Murray Shire Council population forecasts

The Murray Shire Council population forecast for 2020 is 18,117, and is forecast to grow to 70,913 by 2051.

The Murray Shire Council population and household forecasts present what is driving population change in the community and how the population, age structure and household types will change each year between 2016 and 2051.

The forecasts are designed to provide community groups, Council, investors, business, students and the general public with knowledge to make confident decisions about the future.

These forecasts were last adjusted in October 2020 by .id, the population experts, on behalf of Murray Shire Council. Forecasts are available for each year from 2016 to 2051. They do not consider potential impacts to assumptions stemming from COVID-19. They do, however, provide a base line by which to understand where the population may have been without this external shock.
