Australia’s population reached 25 million as of 11pm (AEST) on Tuesday 7 August, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). 

This shows a growth rate of 1.6 per cent since 2017, and an estimated increase of one new person every 83 seconds. 

This equals to an estimation of one birth every 1 minute and 42 seconds, one death every 3 minutes and 16 seconds, one person arriving in Australia every 1 minute and 1 second, and one Australian leaving Australia every 1 minute and 51 seconds. 

“Australia’s population has increased more than sixfold since 1901 when it was 3.8 million,” ABS Director of Demography, Anthony Grubb said. 

“By 1918 it had grown to 5 million, it had doubled to 10 million by 1959 and reached 20 million in October 2004. It has been just over 2.5 years since we reached 24 million in January 2016,” he added. 

ABS also found that 67 per cent of the population live in the capital cities in each State. For example, 65 per cent of those residing in NSW are in Sydney. 

The new figure of 25 million places Australia 54rd on the global population scale, below North Korea and Cote d’Ivoire, and above Cameroon and Taiwan. 

4.6 million people live in New Zealand, 66 million in the United Kingdom, and 328 million live in the United States. 

 ABS estimates that Australia will reach 26 million within three years.
