The 2006 census put the population at approximately 19,800,000. The current estimate is around 21,800,000, which is quite an increase in just three years. The make-up of the population is 92% white / European origin, 7% Asian origin and 1% aboriginal or other.
The current population of Australia is about 23.5 million in 2014. This is a large increase from 21.8 in 2009. This is mainly due to immigration, but is also caused by increase in birth rate. Immigration is the leading factor, as many people want to live the Australian lifestyle. Birth rate is increased by the baby bonuses given out by the government.
