Australia doesn't have a high birth rate. These are the comparative figures according to Wikipedia:

NZ 2.03
UK 1.89
US 1.87
AU 1.77
CA 1.60

Total growth for Australia between 2006-2016 was 18.4% compared to 11.2% for Canada. In numerical terms, Australia grew by 3,759,843 people compared to 3,538,831 for Canada (according to their respective censuses). Neither is growing as fast as Texas, which adds over 400k a year.

First of all you just argued my point. Those are the developed nations with the highest birth rate (Canada excluded). You missed Ireland and maybe 1 other. Most developed nations are well below Australia's birth rate. Canada lies somewhere in the middle.

Secondly, Texas isn't a country but a jurisdiction within one that benefits from large scale in migration from other US states.

heh, Australia's NOM is a tad over 50% what it was in 2008. The pre-GFC/mining boom era saw the huge net overseas migration spread far more evenly around the country - Melbourne and Sydney saw high growth, but so did the regions of WA and QLD where a lot of labour was needed to build the enormous resources projects.

In 2016/2017 the mining/resources boom-bust cycle was well and truly on the bust side of the equation and the overseas migration is again focused just on Melbourne and Sydney.

Anyhow, the Melbourne SA2 (effectively the CBD) is now the most densely populated area of Australia: https://urban.melbourne/planning/201...reas-melbourne

France, Sweden and Norway are also above the Australian TFR figure, while Belgium, Netherlands and Denmark have similar figures to Oz.

The EU average is 1.60, same as Canada but below Australia.

These were the local areas with the fastest and slowest population growth in great Britain in the year to June 2016.

Births: 919,000 (951,000) -3.4%

Deaths: 742,000 (720,000) +3.1%


Estimate for the TFR for 2017: 1.76 (1.822)
