Victoria in Future 2016 (VIF2016) is the official
state government projection of population
and households. Projections are used by
decision makers across government and
in other areas. The results are driven by
assumptions concerning demographic and
land use trends.
Projections are based on the latest
(30 June 2015) population estimates from
the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and
incorporate the results of the 2011 Census. For
Victoria and major regions, the projections
cover the period from 2011 to 2051. For Local
Government Areas (LGA) and Victoria
in Future Small Areas (VIFSA), the
projections extend to 2031.
