ACT Population by age and sex

COVID-19 has had a significant effect on the ACT’s population both now and into the future.  Hence ACT Treasury is working with the ANU’s School of Demography within the Research School of Social Sciences to project the ACT’s population by single age, by sex and by suburb over the medium term.

These projections are expected to be published in the second half of 2021.
