Population clock

    On 11 June 2012 at 09:10:19 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:


This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 30 September 2011 and assumes growth since then of:

  • one birth every 1 minute and 47 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 35 seconds ,
  • a net gain of one international migration every 2 minutes and 47 seconds, leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 34 seconds .

These assumptions are consistent with figures released in Australian Demographic Statistics, September Quarter 2011 (cat. no. 3101.0).
