The population of Western Australia and the Northern Territory each grew by 2.4 per cent, Queensland 2.3 per cent, and Victoria 1.6 per cent. New South Wales experienced only a moderate increase of 1.1 per cent.

According to BIS Shrapnel, Australia is currently producing 156,000 new homes annually – well shy of the 185,000 needed to accommodate its growing population.
