To calculate this figure we assume population change after 30 June 2012 of:
* 67 live births per day (+)
* 39 deaths per day (-)
* nearly 2 more people leave than come here to live per day (-)
These figures equate to one person being added to the population every 54 minutes.
The population clock shows the population for the displayed date and time. It assumes constant population change throughout the year and is not intended to be an exact count. This population clock is calculated using the latest population statistics but will be updated as further data becomes available.
