It is not surprising that Australian population just reached 24 million. Based on the figures, the number of people migrating to Australia has the biggest part for 54% population increase last year.
Last Tuesday, Australia population ticked over to 24 million and more than half of that growth is because of the unstoppable growth of new migrants.
According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics population clock, the population increases in every 91 seconds combining the birth, death and migration rates. Based on the figures provided, Australian population is projected to reach 25million in 2018 and will double by 2086. According to Beidar Cho, the ABS director of demography, the number of migrants overtook the birth rate as the main source of the increase in the population in 2006.
