Committee for Perth WA stats

The Committee for Perth released its latest Fact Sheet with this easy to read graphic.

Interesting to note that the huge state of Western Australia only has 10% of Australia’s population, so over-population is not something we have to greatly worry about here in the west.

While the unemployment rate is 6.3% in WA the forecast for employment growth is 2%, so let’s hope that will be at least the case as the nation’s average is 5%.

    Roel, overpopulation is a concern for Western Australia, Australia and the planet. Don’t confuse land mass with the ability to actually support the population in the standard we are used to. How much of the state is unsuitable for agriculture or doesn’t have water?
