The population of the division is about 2.2 million people, with 1.8 million in the capital, Perth, and a further 400,000 people living in the surrounding regional cities and rural areas. This leaves 200,000 people living in the remainder of the state. Therefore, around 92% of Western Australia's population lives in this division.
