Particulars:
Data for the 19th century do not include the number of Aborigines.
There are, however, some estimates of the population of the pre settlement period (prior to 1770) of this continent.
These estimates of the Aborigine population range from 300,000 to 1 million.
More precise figures are lacking but the figure of 500,000 with +/- 200,000 people may also be found.

Figures in italic from 1902-1943 are based on source KB.
