The Demography of Developing Northern Australia

Andrew Taylor, Hannah Payer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference Paper published in Proceedingspeer-review


In light of the current policy focus of developing northern Australia, numerous government reports, inquiries and papers have been tabled. The recent ‘Green Paper on Developing Northern Australia’ embeds three significant population themes: 1. Significantly grow the populations of urban zones in the north, 2. Improve net interstate migration flows between the north and remainder of Australia, and 3. Increase international migration to the region. The aim of this research is to analyse pre-existing demographic and socio-economic
characteristics of the population of northern Australia, comparing and contrasting populations within the region and the region itself to the rest of Australia as a basis for commenting on opportunities and challenges associated with the demography of developing northern Australia.
