In recent years there has been recurrent debate in Australia over how big or small the nation’s population should be in the future. Changes in the combination of increased birth rates and net overseas migration can greatly impact on the size and age structure of the population, at a time when more Australians are increasingly living longer. Current trends and policies involving population growth, particularly in relation to immigration intake, will have a major impact on Australia’s future sustainability and quality of life. This book features the latest statistical projections and analyses for Australia’s population size and examines recent intergenerational findings from government. The book also presents a range of views in the population debate from an economic, environmental and social perspective. Do we want or need a ‘big Australia’? Does size really matter? Also includes: worksheets and activities, fast facts, glossary, web links, index.
