Population clock

    On 24 January 2021 at 08:02:29 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    25,744,345

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 30 June 2020 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 43 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 13 seconds,
  • one person arriving to live in Australia every 30 minutes and 26 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 9 minutes and 1 second, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 5 minutes and 13 seconds.

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in National, state and territory population.
