The WA Tomorrow report provides the State Government with an estimate of the future population structure by age, sex and region in Western Australia. The forecasts are used across government agencies to plan for future service and infrastructure requirements where a change in the age and/or sex distribution needs to be considered. They are particularly important to health and education providers in planning future infrastructure and service requirements such as primary schools and hospitals.
A section on the Ageing Population examines how the increased number of elderly will impact health services and aged care planning, welfare spending and housing and infrastructure.
