The Victorian Population Bulletin provides a valuable snapshot of information on population change and the basic drivers behind that change, as recorded by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).  The Bulletin compares growth rates between the States and between the Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Victoria.

After each Census year, the department publishes a special edition of the Victorian Population Bulletin in addition to the annual edition that comes out at mid-year.
