Australia: Sydney’s population set to pass 5 Million in weeks

Ten Eyewitness News (Sydney)

Sydney’s population is set to reach 5 Million next month, with more than fifteen-hundred new residents now packing into the city each week.

When you put that into perspective, that’s almost one in five Australians now calling Sydney home.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), Sydney’s population increased by 83,300 in the twelve months to June 2015, with the highest growth recorded in the outer suburbs and around the city centre.

Pushing the population growth is high-density housing in the inner-city suburbs of Waterloo, Beaconsfield, Pyrmont and Ultimo areas.

Beaconsfield had the largest growth of all areas in the state, increasing by 3,100 people in 2014-15.

With the milestone mark fast approaching head of the 2016 Census, Duncan Young, is calling on all Australians to take part in the Census on August 9.
