Population Of Australia Tops 21,000,000

29 June 2007 at 21:35:16 (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be:

21,000,001

This 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.

See what we have reached now.

It's amazing that a country with less people than Southern California produces so many notable people.

I mean, per capita, the number of world-famous celebrities and athletes has got to be higher than any other country.

Isn't Australia always in the top five of medal grabbers at the Olympics?

There was a big write up in the West Australian yesterday about what the census said about Australia, all very positive stuff too.

And how its great that the country has expanded so much, also spoke about the richest states, higest income state, biggest houses and happiest state.

I believe the stats are we (Australians) produce 15 - 17 times per capita the number of both Olympic medals and Hollywood celebrities as the United States.

But the continent only supported a tiny number of humans before white people arrived on the scene. I keep hearing terrible stuff about water shortages in QLD, and that Perth is in an even more precarious situation, it may one day be abandoned.

So I'm pleased for Oz if this makes the country proud etc (and no question that Aussies punch above their numbers in sport, Hollywood etc) - but can the land actually support this many people for a sustained period, and if it can (fingers crossed), how many more before water and resources IS a problem?

There are water shortages...but with the mining boom in WA and elsewhere, they might just be able to desalinate the water like they do in the Middle East. So I dont think anybody will be abandoning PER anytime soon (and hope the property rates don't go down as well  Silly )

OK Graham your Scottish Nationalist stance is just plain boring now!

Where did Scotland end up in the game?

Reminds me of the Red Dwarf book where it talked about genetically engineered lifeforms, and the Scotland team engineered a goalkeeper who matched exactly the dimensions of the goal, a wall of human flesh to prevent any football from hitting the back of the net.

They still didn't qualify for the 2nd round.

Anyway, you won.

Now the PM is a scot.

On this issue there has been decent rainfall on the eastern seaboard as well as regional areas in the last month

Quote:

A MONTH of extreme weather across the state has brought relief at last for Goulburn's 22,000 residents who for almost three years have endured tough water restrictions. But tomorrow the restrictions will be lifted after more than 170 millimetres of rain drenched the district.

The city, which has had the highest water restrictions - level 5 - since October 2004 was jubilant yesterday when it appeared that people would once again be able to have a good bath.

And more good rainfall may be on the way, with the weather bureau announcing yesterday that there are new signs a La Nina event is forming offshore. La Ninas - the cooling of the waters of the central and eastern Pacific - are the opposite of El Ninos, which are blamed for worsening droughts in eastern Australia.

The last El Nino was declared over in February.

In Goulburn, falls of 70 millimetres in the past three days have left the countryside awash, with dams overflowing on properties and the Wollondilly River bursting its banks after six years of drought.
