Assessment Task Sheet

Australian International Academy, Kellyville

Name: _____________________________ Date: _______________

Year Level: Year 8 Subject: Mathematics

TITLE: Spot On!

Due Date: 30th March 2018

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?

The population of Australia on census day 2011 was 21507717

2. Express the male and female population as a proportion of the entire population. Give
your answer as a fraction and a percentage.
Male- 10634013/21507717
49%

Female-10873704/21507717
51%

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


23%
4. How many people were aged 14 years and younger?

4144023 people

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?


32%

6. Study the statistics of The Hills Shire and Parramatta council from the 2014 census.
Answer the questions below based on your findings.
Questions Parramatta The Hills Shire
% of Australian Population 0.97% 0.67%
Persons per Hectare 28.06 4.21
% of all the registered 0.66% 0.70%
vehicles in Australia

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)

From 1901 to 2015 the population of australia has increased largly, in 1901 the population of
australia was 3,788,123 and that is not a lot of people but as we already know the population
of people keeps increases so lets move to 2015 the population was 23.79 million and that is a
lot of people, no matter how much time goes the population continues to grow. Some of the
reason that australias population would inctrease is the natural increase. A natural increase is
when the number of births is higher than the number of deaths overall increasing the
population of Australia. Anothr reason is due to immigration and emigration. Immigration is
the action of moving permanently to a foreign country. Emigration is when a person leaves
their own to country to settle abroad. In 1970 there was 257516 births and in 2015 there was
309582 births. There are more births and deaths over the years because of the natural
increase.
