Sustained population growth is an important element in ensuring Australia’s long-term economic growth and prosperity.
Australia’s population – its size, growth and diversity – will have a significant role in driving productivity, innovation and economic growth in the future.

This research should provide a welcome addition to the debate on the economic benefits for Australia of sustained migration and population growth.
