The ABS and Demographic Statistics
Demographic statistics provide measures of the Australian population, its size, growth, composition and geographic distribution, as well as the components that shape population change: births, deaths and migration. Australia's population has more than doubled over the last 50 years from a resident population of 9 million in 1955 to over 20 million in 2005.

This Topics @ a Glance page provides a guide to both ABS and non-ABS data, with statistics and information on Demography. Included are links to further sources of information. Many of these links will take you to the Main Features or Media releases of publications which you can view online, or follow further links to purchase a printed copy of the publication.
