South Australia is set to experience substantial population growth in the coming years, with forecasts predicting a population of over two million by 2031 and an annual growth rate of up to 0.7 per cent in Regional SA.
This surge is attributed to key factors such as the state’s involvement in building nuclear-powered submarines following the AUKUS agreement and the Hydrogen Jobs Plan.
These projections will play a pivotal role in shaping the state’s future infrastructure, housing, and essential services.
Government agencies are using this data as a foundation for long-term planning, aiming to accommodate changing demographics and ensure sustainable growth.
With a projected population of 2.33 to 2.53 million by 2051, the state is actively preparing for its dynamic future.
