Population clock

    On 30 September 2020 at 07:24:19 AM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    25,706,676

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 31 March 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 5 minutes and 28 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 1 minutes and 52 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 4 minutes and 38 seconds.

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in Australian Demographic Statistics, December Quarter 2019 (cat. no. 3101.0).
