Population clock

    On 9 December 2021 at 07:38:03 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:


This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 31 March 2021 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 45 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 12 seconds,
  • one person arriving to live in Australia every 2 minute and 35 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 2 minute and 43 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 3 minutes and 38 seconds.

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