Australian Historical Population Statistics contains a wide range of time series demographic data in computer spreadsheet form going back, where possible, to the beginnings of European settlement (1788) of Australia. Statistics are included on population size and growth, population distribution, population age-sex structure, births, deaths, migration, marriages and divorces.

ABS sees this as an evolving product with new data sets being added in response to need and the availability of data in electronic form.

Sources used for Australian Historical Population Statistics have been stated at the bottom of each spreadsheet. Given that different sources may exist for the same data, discrepancies may exist between Australian Historical Population Statistics and these sources.

While periodic updates are envisaged, more up-to-date information may be available from the ABS web site at
<>. From the navigation bar select Themes, then Demography.

Comments on Australian Historical Population Statistics, including apparent anomalies and omissions as well as suggestions of existing data for inclusion, would be appreciated and should be sent to
Chrissy Beruldsen <>. If you wish to discuss any issues, Chrissy Beruldsen's phone number is 02 6252 6522.
