Population clock

    On 28 November 2020 at 04:13:19 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    25,725,120

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 54 minutes and 28 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 13 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 National, state and territory population.
