Population clock

    On 1 December 2022 at 04:10:32 AM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

    26,086,853

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 31 March 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 1 minute and 31 seconds,
  • one Australian resident leaving Australia to live overseas every 2 minutes and 20 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 2 minutes and 1 second.

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