Demographics

DemographicsThe Kimberley is characterised by a unique demographic set that includes around 50% Indigenous people and a young workforce that is aiming to capitalise on regional opportunities.

On this page we present key demographic statistics for the region including estimated resident population, natural population increase, migration (interstate and overseas) and population projections.

Population Projections

How many people are expected to call the Kimberley home in the years to come? In this section we present conservative (lowest) and also optimistic (highest) forecast figures for the population of Local Government Areas in the Kimberley (or equivalent to ‘band A’ and ‘band E’ in forecast range terms). These population figures are regularly produced and updated by the WA Planning Commission, which generates population projections for Local Government Areas in the State (where ’forecast’ and ‘projection’ have the same meaning).
