Population clock
 

    On 4 August 2015 at 05:17:32 AM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    23,852,879
This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 31 December 2014 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 45 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 25 seconds ,
  • a net gain of one international migration every 2 minutes and 12 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 22 seconds.

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in Australian Demographic Statistics, December Quarter 2014 (cat. no. 3101.0).
