Drop in Migration Rate projected in Australia after COVID lockdowns

Recently published population data projections indicate that only two states in Australia will fail to benefit from interstate migration as people make movements in light of the COVID lockdown. The states include Victoria and New South Wales.

The Center for Population in Australia forecasts that Sydney is likely to lose around 30,000 residents during 2021-2022 while Melbourne will lose 32,000 people.

The national population of Australia is expected to rise to 29.3 million in 2021-2022 from its current level of 25.7 million.

Net migration increase in other states will be driven by migration from Victoria and New South Wales. Queensland is projected to continue to have the highest net interstate migration gains as the region has not witnessed extensive lockdowns and remains a popular destination for interstate migrants.
