    On 16 April 2014 at 05:48:52 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    23,457,307
This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 30 September 2013 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 42 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 36 seconds ,
  • a net gain of one international migration every 2 minutes and 9 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 17 seconds .

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in Australian Demographic Statistics, September Quarter 2013 (cat. no. 3101.0).
