By Simon Hill article With the number of births in the state forecast to hit 3.2 million, and the number expected to increase to 3.5 million by 2035, Australia’s population is expected to reach 5.2 billion by the end of the century.
The population growth of the country will be driven by the expected increase in the number and types of babies born.
The number of babies per woman in Australia is expected rise from 1.8 to 2.4 over the next 25 years, according to a new report by the Institute of Family Studies (IFS).
This means the number per woman will double in the next five years.
The institute’s report, titled The Impact of a Rising Population on Health and Welfare, said that by 2050 Australia’s projected population would grow by 7 per cent annually.
The increase in population is driven by a combination of factors.
Australia’s birth rate will rise to 5.1 per cent, as baby boomers retire and the ageing population of Australia continues to grow.
The IFS also noted that the number that will be born by 2033 will be around 40 per cent higher than the current Australian population.
The report also noted the population of the state will grow by more than half in the decade to 2035 compared to the current rate of growth.
The median age of the population is predicted to increase from 35 to 41.
In the next 10 years, Australia will have more people aged 65 and over than ever before.
The researchers found that by 2040 the median age will be 30 years, compared to an Australian median of 24 years in 2050.
The rate of ageing in Australia will also continue to rise as Australians live longer.
The Institute of Families Research also found that there were 4.5 more deaths per 1,000 population in 2035 than in 2050, due to a rise in the death rate in older age groups, particularly those over 65 years old.
This has led to a decrease in the proportion of people living alone, compared with the previous 20 years.
More births are also expected in Tasmania and Queensland.
The study said that Tasmania, the state with the highest fertility rate in the country, will experience a significant increase in its population by 2032.
The research found that in Tasmania, Tasmania will experience an increase in births to a total of 4.1 children per woman by 2039.
In Queensland, the fertility rate will increase by 0.6 to 4.2 per 1 the population by that time.
