Population of Australia 2014

As of 1 January 2015, the population of Australia was estimated to be 23 513 564 people. This is an increase of 1.15 % (266 872 people) compared to population of 23 246 692 the year before. In 2014 the natural increase was positive, as the number of births exceeded the number of deaths by 126 694. Due to external migration, the population increased by 140 178. The sex ratio of the total population was 0.994 (994 males per 1 000 females) which is lower than global sex ratio. The global sex ratio in the world was approximately 1 016 males to 1 000 females as of 2014. See also map of the world by sex ratio of total population.

Australia population 2015

During 2015 Australia population is estimated to be increased by 269 936 people and reach 23 783 500 in the beginning of 2016. The natural increase is expected to be positive, as the number of births will exceed the number of deaths by 128 149. If external migration will remain on the previous year level, the population will be increased by 141 787 due to the migration reasons. It means that amount of people who moves into Australia (to which they are not native) in order to settle there as permanent residents (immigrants) will prevail over the amount of people who leaves the country to settle permanently in another country (emigrants).

Population dynamics in 2015

According to our estimations, daily change rates of Australia population in 2015 will be the following:

The population of Australia will be increased by 740 persons daily in 2015.

Australia population density

Australia population density is 3.0 people per square kilometer as of September 2015. Density of population is calculated as permanently settled population of Australia divided by total area of the country. Total area is the sum of land and water areas within international boundaries and coastlines of Australia. The total area of Australia is 7 741 220 km2 according to the United Nations Statistics Division .

Australia age structure

As of the beginning of 2015 according to our estimations Australia had the following population age distribution:

18.3 67.7 14

- percentage of population under 15 years old
- percentage of population between 15 and 64 years old
- percentage of population above 64 years old

In absolute figures (estimation):

We prepared a simplified model of the population distribution pyramid which is broken down into 3 main age groups. The groups are the same as we used above: population under 15, between 15 and 64 and population which is over 65 year old.

65+
15-64
0-14
male female

Note: The pyramid provided is not corresponding to data given above because the age groups have different number of years.

As we can see the Australia population pyramid has a stationary type. Countries with such type of pyramid usually have declining birth rate and relatively low death rate. Which is more common for developed countries.

Australia age dependency ratio

Dependency ratio of population is a ratio of people who are generally not in the labor force (the dependents) to workforce of a country (the productive part of population). The dependent part includes the population under 15 years old and people aged 65 and over. The productive part of population accordingly consists of population between 15 and 64 years.

This ratio shows the pressure on productive population produced by the dependent part of population.

The total dependency ratio of population in Australia is 47.7 %.

The value of 47.7 % is relatively low. It shows that the dependent part of population is less than a half of the working part. In other words the working population (labor force) in Australia must provide goods for itself and cover expenditure on children and aged persons. And this part of population is less than 50% of working population.
