ESTIMATED RESIDENT POPULATION
Victoria's estimated resident population (ERP) at the end of any given period is the estimated population at the beginning of the period plus the sum of three components: natural increase, net overseas migration and net interstate migration.
In September quarter 2007, Victoria's ERP grew by 21,200 persons or 0.41%. Australia's ERP grew by 0.38% (79,900 persons) over the same period.
Net overseas migration contributed most to Victoria's population growth in the September quarter 2007 (13,400 persons), while natural increase was 8,100 persons. Net interstate migration was a loss of 300 people. With the exception of March quarter 2006, Victoria has experienced a net loss in population to other Australian states in seventeen of the last eighteen quarters.
