Population clock

    On 17 October 2019 at 03:37:59 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    25,492,736

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 31 March 2019 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 46 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 19 seconds,
  • one person arriving to live in Australia every 59 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 1 minute and 46 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, March Quarter 2019 (cat. no. 3101.0).
