Australia’s current population

October 9th, 2009

Ever wondered what the current population of Australia is? I found this on the Australian Bureau of Statistics…

On 9 October 2009 at 17:54:29 (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be: 22,009,769

This projection is based on the estimated resident population at 31 March 2009 and assumes growth since then of:

  • one birth every 1 minute and 44 seconds,
  • one death every 3 minutes and 39 seconds,
  • a net gain of one international migrant every 1 minutes and 53 seconds leading to
  • an overall total population increase of one person every 1 minute and 12 seconds.

The thing I find interesting is that they know on average how many people will be born, die and migrate every minute or so.

I hope the ones who are dying know Jesus! It makes me want to get out and talk to people about Him.
