To calculate this figure we assume population change after 30 June 2017 of:
- 65 live births per day (+)
- 42 deaths per day (-)
- Roughly 2 more people come here to live than leave here per day (-)
These figures equate to one person being added to the population every 59 minutes.
The population clock figure is calculated using data from the most recent available population projections (currently 2016-based). As such, the displayed data relates to the difference between the mid-2017 projection and the mid-2018 projection.
The population is for the displayed date and time and assumes constant population change throughout the year. It is not intended to be an exact count.
