    Population forecasts lack one, and one, element only, what the immigrant has between their ears and how, or will, they practice it, are they socially acceptable to community and Gov. of the day to live with in the Aust population in streets, suburbs, cities, states, without having pot shots at the locals who won’t tolerate their discord to living and addition cost on the Gov. of the day which is all out of the P.A.Y.E. tax & G,S,T, contribution. Many senior males think every time we lift our pen, pencil, to complain, they are regarded as old uneducated fools, perhaps we should be lifting a rifle to finalise the problem. Very sorry state when it comes to this, but will we ever have a common sense Gov. Fed, State, then unconstitutional local councils, there are more dip sticks in these offices, than in the Korean Kia car company

    Different state governments’s population forecasting units might have different methods and aptitudes in forecasting population!

    Yet the State Government does track individual sites through the Metropolitan Development Programme.
    Why then is this data allegedly not incorporated?
