No longer the Sunshine State? Recent population trends in Queensland

Simone - Myth Buster

Simone has a rich background in human geography, demography and urban planning – a background that was useful in her previous roles in the Commonwealth and State Governments, and now as part of the forecast team at .id. From the Queensland coast to the southern suburbs of Perth, Simone produces population and dwelling forecasts that help local governments make informed decisions about future service and planning needs. She is a regular contributor to .id’s blog and has spoken at several conferences on how our cities and regions are changing. She is a big advocate of evidence-based planning and how Census and other data can inform this. Outside of work Simone is a keen traveller and photographer – interests that tie in well with her professional life and help her to understand “place”.

  1. I can vouch for the slowdown in Queensland since 2013 when I moved my IT business up here from NSW. It has been near impossible to make sales in Southeast Queensland and jobs in Southeast Queensland are very scarce. Moreton Bay especially is shrinking I would say as 10% of Moreton Bay jobs are in Brisbane or Sunshine Coast. There is not enough businesses in Moreton Bay to support the population.
