Population clock

    On 2 February 2023 at 12:59:26 AM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    26,281,918

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 30 June 2022 and assumes growth since then of:
  • one birth every 1 minute and 43 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 10 seconds,
  • one person arriving to live in Australia every 53 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 2 minutes and 19 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 2 second.

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