  • ITYPETRAVEL: Latest statistics of population in the country of Australia, including languages spoken, urban population, birth rate, fertility rate and life expectancy for both men and women.

Population and Religion

Population

The Aborigines, the indigenous population of Australia, together with the islanders of the Torres Strait (“Torres Strait Islanders”) form an ethnic minority of 2.3% of the total population. Their traditional way of life is seldom preserved and mostly only in the reserves. In order to protect the culture of the Aborigines, who did not get the right to vote until 1967, laws were passed which, among other things, gave them the right to vote. give the right to claim land rights from the state.

The majority population is made up of residents of European descent (90%). Their immigration began in 1788 after Australia was taken over by Great Britain. After the British, Germans were the second largest immigrant group in Australia (increasingly since 1838) until the First World War. Since 1860 Great Britain operated a controlled immigration policy (“White Australia Policy”), which was de facto continued by the Australian Confederation (founded in 1901). After the Second World War, immigration was actively promoted by Europeans. After the “White Australia Policy” was abandoned, immigration from Asian countries (especially from China, India, and Vietnam) increased. Some of the Asians living in Australia today (7% of the total population) are descendants of contract workers (mostly Chinese), who came to the country 150 years ago. The number of net immigrants set by the federal government fluctuates very strongly from year to year (2016/17: 245 400). At the end of 2018, there were 60,600 refugees in Australia. Australia has a restrictive refugee policy, especially towards the Boat people.

With an average of 3 residents / km 2 (2018), Australia is one of the sparsely populated countries. The population is very unevenly distributed in the country; due to the climate and natural conditions, it is mainly concentrated in the peripheral areas in the south-east and south-west. More than three quarters of the population live in the states of New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland; 85% live a maximum of 50 km from the coast. The deserts and semi-deserts of the interior (»outback«) are almost completely deserted. Even in the beneficiary regions, the density in rural areas is seldom higher than 8 residents / km 2. Only the cities and their surrounding areas have higher values. The proportion of the urban population is 86%. The largest metropolitan areas are Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

Social: Up to the middle of the 19th century, society consisted of three groups: the lower class consisted of convicts, the middle class of released prisoners and the upper class of administrative officials and landowners. Only with the “gold rush” of 1851, due to which larger groups of various social origins immigrated, did the convicts become a minority. When gold mining lost its importance, a broader middle class of farmers, artisans and merchants formed. In the wake of further economic development and the expansion of the settlement into the hitherto empty spaces, there was a latent shortage of workers. In the interests of social peace, it was decided against recruiting Asian workers. The European immigrants were integrated into the existing society without difficulty. The formation of isolated national groups was countered; a reinforced ethnic segregation has only recently become apparent. Check nexticle to see Australia Travel Package.

The Aborigines still complain about discrimination and social disadvantage. Under pressure to assimilate Australian society, they fear for the preservation of their cultural heritage and their ethnic identity.

*) Agglomerations

Most of the immigrants move to the big cities; he finds work in industry, construction and the expanding service sector. Agriculture has been making workers redundant for some time. When Australia joined the economic development of the western industrialized countries, an adjustment to their social structures took place at the same time.

Religion

The constitution (Article 116) guarantees religious freedom and expressly excludes state privileges for a particular religion over other religious communities.

The latest available estimates show that over 50% of the population are Christians: almost 23% belong to the Catholic Church, over 13% to the Anglican Church, less than 10% to the classical (post-) Reformation churches (Methodists, Reformed, Baptists, Lutherans), more than 2% different Eastern Churches (especially Greek Orthodox); a good 4% are members of smaller religious communities. Seat of the Primate of the Anglican Church of Australia elected at irregular intervals by the General Synod (with 23 dioceses in six regions; since 1962 independent particular church of the Anglican Church Fellowship) is Melbourne (since 2014). The largest Protestant church is the “Uniting Church in Australia” (almost 4% of the population; founded in 1977 as an amalgamation of Reformed and Methodist churches).

The largest non-Christian religious minorities are Buddhists (over 2% of the population), Muslims (less than 3% of the population) and Hindus (just under 2% of the population). Islam came in the second half of the 19th century (construction of the first mosques in Adelaide [1888], Broken Hill [1891] and Perth [1905]) with the Afghan, Persian and Indian “camel men” (also called Afghans), the as caravan leaders of the work camels, introduced since 1860, played an important role in the Australian transport system, to Australia. The history of the Jewish community in Australia dates back to the first half of the 19th century and inaugurated its first synagogue in Sydney in 1844. Its members make up around 0.4% of the population. For a growing number of Aborigines today, a conscious return to the roots, values ​​and (religious) ideas of their own culture is more and more characteristic. About 30% of the population cannot be assigned to any religion.
