Australia's Population to Fall

 Australia's  National Housing Finance and Investment Corporation’s study found that population growth could be cut by 214,000 between 2019 and 2021, a 0.8% decline only surpassed by the first world war and the unwinding of the 1971 baby boom. This is the result of international border closures that have effectively shut down net overseas migration, which has accounted for 59% of population growth since 2007.

It could cut demand for housing in Australia by between 129,000 and 232,000 dwellings over the next three years

International students account for 50% of migration and the study notes Covid-19 hotspots such as India and Brazil are large contributors to Australia’s pool of students.
