The preliminary estimated resident population of Australia at December 2001, was 19,603,500 persons. The population increased by 242,900 persons (1.3%) since December 2000.

The December Quarter 2001 issue of Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0), issued on 6 June 2002, contains preliminary estimates of the resident populations of Australia and the states and territories based on the results of the 2001 Census of Population and Housing. Previously published estimates dating back to 30 September 1996 have been revised to take account of this new information.
