Melbourne’s population is tipped to grow 28 per cent faster than Sydney’s over the next six years, according to McCrindle Research. Both cities are tipped to have a population of around six million in mid-2026, but Melbourne’s population will pass Sydney’s by the end of that year. Mark McCrindle of McCrindle Research says Melbourne’s rising population will help to boost its national political power, as well as helping it to attract more companies, along with sporting and cultural events.

Data from Roy Morgan Research shows that the underemployment rate in Geelong is 8.5 per cent, while 17 per cent of people in the Victorian regional city are either unemployed or seeking more work. Roy Morgan executive chairman Gary Morgan says underemployment is the biggest problem facing Australia, and failure to take action will see the Australian dollar slump and the economy go into recession. Meanwhile, Geelong Trades Hall secretary Colin Vernon says the increase in underemployment could result in workers being exploited.
