The ABS Population Clock Web Service provides Australian population projection information as a JSON web service to serve ABS applications as well as allowing developers to create their own Population Clock.
The API serves up the real time Australian population figure. It also includes the information about frequency of births, deaths, international migration and overall total Australian population increase that are used in its calculation.
These data are consistent with estimated resident population data released in the latest issue of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0).
The web service is licensed for reuse under Creative Commons and terms and conditions of use are available on http://www.abs.gov.au. ABS must be acknowledged as the source of the population information.
