City of YarraPopulation forecast

Welcome to the City of Yarra population forecasts

The City of Yarra population forecast for 2021 is 105,877, and is forecast to grow to 157,607 by 2041.

The City of Yarra 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 2041.

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 August 2018 by .id, the population experts, on behalf of the City of Yarra. Forecasts are available for each year from 2016 to 2041. They do not consider potential impacts to assumptions stemming from COVID-19. They do, however, provide a baseline by which to understand where the population may have been without this external shock. We regularly monitor the performance of our forecasts. These forecasts were last evaluated in November 2020 against the most recent population estimates and building approvals (reference dates are year ending June 2019)
