The ABS estimates for population in the first quarter of 2015 show the total Australian population up 1.4% from a year ago at 23.714 million (this rate of growth is unchanged from the previous quarter). Population in Queensland grew at just 1.3% (down from 1.4% last quarter) to 4.767 million; an additional 61,100 people.
