Projected population and dwelling data helps support evidence based decision making on the Sunshine Coast. Council, the business sector and the community use this information to contribute to the planning and delivery of services to meet the needs of our growing community.

In June 2021, the total population on the Sunshine Coast is projected to be approximately 350,000 people. Over the following twenty years to 2041 it is projected over 160,000 additional people will settle on the coast. These projected figures would see our population reach over 500,000 residents by 2041.
