Population Photograph 1901 and 2007
This slide shows Tasmania's age-sex structure as it was in 1901 (unshaded bars) and 2008. Observe the significant structural ageing of the population. In 1901, 37 per cent of the population was aged 0-14 years; today that is not quite 20 per cent. In 1901, 4.1 per cent was aged 65+ years; today that is 14.8 per cent.
