The following table displays some selected characteristics for Australia based on the
information collected in the 2011
census. Study the table and answer
the questions given below:

1. What was the total

population of Australia on
census day 2011?

10634013+10873704=21507717
2. Express the male and female population as a proportion of the entire population. Give
Female= 10 873 704/ 21 507 717 x 100 = 50.51%
Male= 10 634 013/ 21507717 x 100= 49.44%

3. What percentage of the population speaks English and another language?

21 507 717 16 509 291= 4998426
4998426/ 21507717 x 100 = 23.24%

4. How many people were aged 14 years and younger?

People aged 15 years and over = 17 363 694
Total Population= 21507717
21 507 717- 17 363 694= 4144023
4144023/ 21507717 x 100= 19.27%

The table below shows the same

characteristics from the first table,
but it relates to NSW only. Study
the table and answer the questions given below:

5. What percentage of the total Australian population lives in NSW?

3 408 878 + 3 508 780 = 6 917 658
6917658/ 21507717 x 100= 32.16%
6. Study the statistics of The Hills Shire and Parramatta council from the 2013 census.
Questions Parramatta The Hills Shire
% of Australian Population 0.93% 0.66%
Persons per Hectare 27.48 per hectare 4.15 per hectare
(couldnt find any
information for persons per
hectare so I did total
amount)
% of all the registered 1.47% 0.71%
vehicles in Australia
18 million registered cars
248 708 vehicles in parrmatta
121 583 vehicles in hills shire 121583/18000000 x 100= 0.675 rounded 0.68

7. Reflect on how the population has changed from 1901 to 2015. Focus on the total
population, Number of births, Life expectancy and the median age. What is the
current poplation of Australia (Word Limit: 300 400 words)

The total population of Australia has drastically changed from 1901 since more migrants
have migrated to Australia and more people have been imported in. In 1901 the total
population of Australia was around 3,773,801 according to wikipedia with 1,977,928 males
and 1,795,873 females.Which is nothing compared to population in 2015, In 2015 Australias
population was 23,968,973 according to worldometers website which compared to 2017
(population 24,560,486) is a increase of 591,513 people. The life expectancy was quite low in
1901 since now we have advanced technology and better medicine. In 1901-1910 the average
life expectancy for a male was 55.2 years, and similarlily females had an average of 58.8
years according to the Australia Bureau of Statistics. Now in 2017 the life expectancy is
much higher around 83.3 due to advanced technology which helps us find cures for many
diseases and the increase of medicine. In 1901 the median age was around 22 years (21 for
females and 23 for males), and in 2015 the median age had increases and was around 37
years according to the Australia Bureau of Statistics. The number of births in 2015 was
around 305,377 (305.4 with 157,088 males and around 148,289 females with the median age
of the mother being 31.0 and the father being an average of around 33.3 years. Which is quite
a lot of births considering in 1901 there was around 102945 number of births 52,509 being
males and 50436 being females. Which means looking at all the information year by year the
population grows, the life expectancy is higher and there are more number of births.
