Human Characteristics
that make New South Wales unique Influences on the Identity of Australia Explain how Australia's changing demographic characteristics are influencing the nature and identity of Australia Distribution in Australia Ethnic Composition Gender Age Structure Population Size Australia is becoming a very multicultural country
We need to have appropriate infrastructure for a rising population
Australia's economy could either benefit or be at a severe disadvantage as a result of the rising population
Growth rates, population size and distribution has an effect on the environment, economy etc. of our country. for e.g we need to have more room and create more housing in some areas and also focus on balancing it out and managing our growth. Simone Best, Kenneth Chen, Keira Linnen, Caitlin Hart, Monica Shakeri Growth Rates percentage of the australian population Ethnic Composition The principal ancestries of New South Wales's residents (as surveyed in 2011) are:
25.0% Australian
24.2% English
7.4% Irish
6.0% Scottish
4.3% Chinese
62.9% of N SW's population is based in Sydney Population Size With almost one third of the total national population, or 7.3 million residents, New South Wales is Australia's largest domestic market. Growth Rates The State's resident population increased by 82,200 people in the year 2010 to 2011, or 1.1%.

NSW's population grew by 7.1 per cent between 2006 and 2011 – the 5th largest growth rate in the Asia Pacific region – and exceeded population growth of a number of major countries over the same period, such as Germany (-1.1%), Japan (-0.2%), Korea (1.3%), China (2.5%), Hong Kong SAR (2.6%), France (2.9%), the United Kingdom (3.0%) and the United States (4.2%), according to the US Census Bureau's International Data Base. Despite this the NSW growth rate in 2010-11 was lower than the national figure of 1.4%. Population Size POPULATION CHANGE, New South Wales - 2010-11
In 2010-11, the five fastest-growing LGAs(Local Government Areas) in NSW were all within Sydney. These included Canada Bay (A) (3.0%), Parramatta (C) (2.5%) and Auburn (C) (2.4%), all located along the Parramatta River in inner western and central western Sydney. Camden (A) (2.8%) in outer south-west Sydney and Manly (A) (2.2%) on the northern beaches also had fast population growth. Age Structure
In June 2010, 30.2% of residents in NSW where aged 20-44 years. Residents 45 years and older accounted for 44% of the population. The younger population (20-44 years) seemed to locate within Sydney, to pursue education and work opportunities, with a notable percentage difference. In Sydney, 38.7 % of the total population was 20-44 year olds compared to 30.2 % in NSW . However the age group 45 years and over contributed to 36.2% of the Sydney population in comparison to 44% in NSW.

Between June 2005 and June 2010, the median age of the NSW population increased from 36.6 years to 37.2 years. Reflecting longer life expectancy. the median age for females (38.0 years) was 1.7 years higher than males (36.3) at June 2010. Sydney had the lowest median age (35.6 years) Gender In June 2010, there were 98.3 males for every 100 females in NSW. In the age groups 0-14 years and 15-64 years there is clearly more males than females. However in the 65 years and older there are more females than males, showing females longer life expectancy.
Most of Australia’s population is concentrated in two widely separated coastal regions – the south-east and east, and the south-west. Of the two regions, the south-east and east is by far the largest in area and population. The population within these regions is mainly concentrated in the capital cities.
