Population clock

    On 15 December 2017 at 12:13:21 AM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    24,767,461

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 30 June 2017 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 44 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 17 seconds,
  • a net gain of one international migration every 2 minutes and 20 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 26 seconds.

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in Australian Demographic Statistics, June Quarter 2017 (cat. no. 3101.0).
