City of Sydney

Components of population change

The greatest population change for the City of Sydney is forecast for the period from 2017 to 2021, which is expected to have a net increase of 42,802 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.
