The New South Wales Department of Planning recently published state and regional population projections for 2006 to 2036. This paper provides an overview of the key projection results, the assumptions made and the model used. The projections put the state's population at 9.07 million by 2036, an increase of 33 per cent on the 2006 population of 6.82 million. Sydney statistical division is projected to capture three quarters of the state's population growth to 2036, increasing from 4.28 million residents in 2006 to 5.98 million by 2036. Nearly all of the remaining population increase in New South Wales is expected to occur in the other coastal regions. Copyright. Monash University and the author/s
