NSW Population Projections and ABS Census 2021 show both similarities and differences

Different planning data sets sometimes tell us different stories and at Mecone we use data science to make better land use decision. We know that population projections are complex because new policy directions and land use change can happen quickly, which can dramatically alter our initial assumptions for a population’s size and distribution. We already see for example areas of NSW where the 2021 census show a population differential by -/+5% to that projected in the State’s official population projections.  These areas may be experiencing sudden and complex demographic change and need a more frequent projection series to keep up to date or coordinated urban plans to manage.
