Slow SA growth
A snapshot of South Australia's population:
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the preliminary estimated resident population (ERP) of South Australia at 31 March 2015 was 1,696,200 people. This is an increase of 13,900 people since 31 March 2014 and an annual growth rate of 0.8%. Australia’s growth rate over the same period was 1.4%.
Population growth is driven by natural increase (births minus deaths) and net migration (overseas and interstate). Net migration contributed 52% of South Australia’s population growth in the 12 months to March 2015. Positive net overseas migration helped to counter South Australia’s net interstate population losses.
This is more easily understood pictorially.
Here’s a diagram showing the components of South Australia's growth, 2014-15
I'm not in a hurry to see higher figures of growth.
SA is somewhat unique due to its smallness compared with the other States.
