Since 2007 Australia has experienced unprecedented population growth consisting both of natural increase and immigration. Immigration, however, accounts for the greater part of this growth, and is set to continue. If the current intake is maintained it will take the country from its present population of just under 24 million to over 45 million by 2061.
In November 2015 Sustainable Population Australia commissioned a survey of attitudes to this population growth. The current paper reports on this survey, presents the headline figures and analyses the focuses of support for and against population growth within the electorate.
