Tasmania's population, like Australia's, continues to age. At 30 June 2005, the median age (the age at which half the population is older and half is younger) of the Tasmanian population was 38.7 years, the second highest of all the states and territories.

There were four local government areas with median ages at or above 45 years: Glamorgan/Spring Bay (47.0 years), Tasman (46.3), Break O'Day (45.7 years) and Flinders (45.5 years). Brighton local government area had the lowest median age, 31.5 years.
