Results of a significant survey showing that most Australians (a clear 51%) do not want population growth have been released today.
Sustainable Population Australia (SPA) president, Sandra Kanck, says this new survey sheds light on an increasingly controversial topic.
‘We now have solid evidence that government and business are not listening to Australian voters on the subject of population growth,’ Ms Kanck said.
Commissioned by SPA and supervised by respected demographer Dr Katharine Betts of The Australian Population Research Institute, fieldwork was conducted between 6th and 12th November 2015 with 1230 respondents who were all Australian citizens.
While 38% of respondents supported continued growth, almost half of this group did not want that growth to go beyond 30 million.
