Victoria in Future 2019 (VIF2019) data can be downloaded as Excel spreadsheets via the links below.
Projections for Victoria and major regions cover the years 2016 to 2056. Projections for smaller geographic areas extend from 2016 to 2036. Data are available either for individual years or every fifth year, depending on the dataset and its source data. Where possible a 2018 estimate has been included based on the latest data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
Data are available for the Estimated Resident Population; the components of population change; population age distribution; households and dwellings.
Data for Victoria and major regions
Major Regions include the Greater Melbourne GCCSA (Greater Capital City Statistical Area) and the eight non-metropolitan SA4s (Statistical Area Level 4). Grand totals for these eight regions are presented as "Victorian Regions". All data for these regions can be downloaded in one file.
Data for Statistical Areas in the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS)
Statistical Areas are those defined and used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). Data are provided for all regions from Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) and above. Data for these regions are compiled into two files: one for population by age groups and one for total population, household and dwelling projections.
Data for Local Government Areas (LGA) and Victoria in Future Small Areas (VIFSA)
Victoria’s 79 municipalities plus Unincorporated Victoria are listed as LGAs. Within each LGA data are presented at the VIFSA level. VIFSA is a customised set of regions designed to fit exactly within LGA boundaries, whereas some ASGS regions cross LGA boundaries. Data for these regions are compiled into two files: one for population by age groups and one for total population, household and dwelling projections.
