Population Projections - 2019 release
The Department of Treasury and Finance have developed projections for the whole of the Territory’s resident population out to the year 2046 and the Territory’s regional populations out to the year 2036, disaggregated by age, sex and Aboriginal identity. The projections are based on Australian Bureau of Statistics 2016 Census final estimated resident population numbers at 30 June 2016. These projections update the earlier release from December 2017, which were based on preliminary 2016 Census data.
The projections have been developed in collaboration with the Demography and Growth Planning team at the Northern Institute of Charles Darwin University.
