    Awesome post! I am in the Kimberley region (regional WA), which experienced an overall decline of 0.3%. Being in a remote region, it is always tricky to rely on boom times in the economic cycle to attract and/or retain internal and overseas migrants to the region. In the long run, I think most of our potential for population growth lies in the natural increase (which here is propped up by the Indigenous component of the population, nearly 50% of all residents).

    It is excellent that the ABS now breaks down the components of population growth, this certainly gives further insight into the dynamics of growth (or decline!).

    I look forward to the post Glenn is writing about how the ABS calculates changes to the population between Censuses.

    Cheers
