Introduction to Demography 1-Day Short Course

Course Type: 
Short course
Course Location: 
Canberra & Sydney: 
ABS House & CDU Sydney Campus
Course Enrolment Date: 
17 Oct 2017

This short course provides a gentle introduction to demography – the study of population – with a particular emphasis on understanding Australian demographic change. No prior knowledge of demography is assumed, and the emphasis is on population trends rather than statistics. The course has been designed for analysts, planners, policy officers, managers, and postgraduate students who would find a basic knowledge of demography useful in their work. It should also be of value to others with an interest in how and why Australia’s population is changing. 

The course is offered in two different locations and will tackle questions such as:

  • How much population ageing is occurring in Australia, and should we be worried?
  • What demographic factors are causing state and territory population growth?
  • Is life expectancy still increasing?
  • How does population affect political representation in Australia?
  • What demographic changes are occurring in our inner cities?
  • Are household sizes increasing?
  • What is the future of Australia’s population?
  • Where can I find demographic data?
