Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Australia population size | McCrindle ResearchAustralia is the largest island nation on earth, and the 6th largest country by land mass (after Russia, Canada, China, USA and Brazil). It is 12 times largest than Europe’s largest country (France), and larger than these 25 countries combined.

Australia is big not just geographically, but also demographically. Australia is growing at 1.6% per year, which not only exceeds every other OECD member nation, but it is above the world average of 1.1%, and above countries such as Indonesia, India, and Malaysia. At 23 million, our population is ranked 52 out of the world’s 242 countries, and as evident in this graphic, larger than these 21 countries combined.
