How Does Australia’s Median Age compare to the World.

The median age of Australian people is 37.3 years, which is higher than the median average for the entire world 30.9 years, but not as high as some countries.

However, 20 years ago the median age of Australians was only 35 years.

Using the figures from the ABS 2018 report, the highest median age was 42 years for those in Tasmania, while the Northern Territory had the lowest median age of 33 years.  This has changed from 1998, when South Australia had the highest, although NT was still the lowest.  Both Tasmania and NT have increased their median ages the most, in the last 20 years.
