Births up 5 Years in a Row

From 1993 to 2001 the number of births in Australia were lower each year than the previous year. This turned around in 2002 and now with 265,900 births reported for 2006 by the ABS, we find births are up again for 5 years in a row.

The increase in births from 2001 to 2006 is 19,500 or 7.9% of the 2001 births, while the core potential birthing age population band of females (age 25 to 35) increased only by 0.15% over this period. So there really has been an acceleration of babies.
