Population clock

On 27 July 2007 at 22:42:52 (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:
21,023,070This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 31 December 2006 and assumes growth since then of:
one birth every 1 minute and 56 seconds,
one death every 3 minutes and 59 seconds,
a net gain of one international migrant every 3 minutes and 15 seconds leading to
an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minutes and 45 seconds.
These assumptions are consistent with those used for Series A in Population Projections, Australia, 2004-2101 (cat. no. 3222.0) with adjustments made for an increase in net overseas migration (NOM) due to the introduction of an improved method of estimating NOM. For further information on the improved NOM method see Information Paper: Improved Methods for Estimating Net Overseas Migration, 2006 (cat. no. 3107.0.55.003) and Information Paper: Statistical Implications of Improved Methods for Estimating Net Overseas Migration, Australia 2007 (cat. no. 3107.0.55.005).
