Population clock

    On 19 June 2018 at 08:55:52 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    24,971,462

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 30 September 2017 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 43 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 16 seconds,
  • one person arriving to live in Australia every 1 minute and 1 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 1 minute and 49 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 24 seconds.

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in Australian Demographic Statistics, September Quarter 2017 (cat. no. 3101.0).

As of 28/03/2018 the population clock was updated to correct the population projection.
