Welcome to Population Research West Australia
POST 53: STATE BUDGET POPULATION AND MIGRATION ASSUMPTIONS FOR WESTERN AUSTRALIA
One of the most important issues facing West Australian’s is population change and high immigration.
The previous WA Liberal Party policy drove the state too extreme levels of population growth (over 500,000 more people between 2006-16).
After a slight pause in hyper population. The McGowan government set about returning WA to high levels of immigration
Then the Wuhan coronavirus hit and overseas arrivals come to an abrupt end. WA is once more at the population policy crossroads.
The good news is the 2020-21 state budget assumes much lower population growth driven by natural increase (births minus deaths).
The gloomy news is the McGowan government are aiming to open up the immigration throttle once more from 2023-24 onward.
Population Research WA is for:
- Culling State Migration
- End foreign student work permits
- Developing a lower population planning strategy
- Bigger lots and low density suburbs
- A jobs first strategy for West Australia’s unemployed
- Reliable energy supplies to grow manufacturing jobs
- A democratic planning system involving Local Government and ratepayers
The Australian public want to halt mass immigration:
In 2018, 54% of Australians say that ‘the total number of migrants coming to Australia each year is too high’.https://www.lowyinstitute.org/publications/2018-lowy-institute-poll
Population Research WA is a Perth based organisation. A public interest website set up to inform West Australian’s about Federal and State government population and immigration policies and the impacts in Western Australia.
