DEEWR small area labour force estimates – The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) derives small area labour market estimates based on the Structure Preserving Estimation methodology. Estimates are derived from three major primary data sources – Centrelink data, ABS labour force data and 2006 Census of Population and Housing labour force data. The data in this publication is from the smoothed series (original data averaged over four quarters). From the June 2010 quarter data is produced taking into account a change to ABS population benchmarks. Historical figures at the SLA level have also been revised, back to the December quarter 2008 (smoothed series) and March quarter 2008 (unsmoothed series). For further information please refer to DEEWR's Small Area Labour Markets webpage.

Government Employee Housing – Housing provided through the Government Employee Housing program, which is a service through Territory Housing that provides accommodation for eligible Northern Territory Government employees.

Public housing applications – The Statistical Subdivision (SSD) in which an applicant submits a public housing application is used to measure the demand for housing in that area regardless of where the applicant wishes to live.

Regional Tourism Profiles These profiles are produced by Tourism Research Australia. They contain information such as domestic and international visitors, nights and expenditure by Tourism Regions (TRs) – refer to Geography Used chapter for further information. At the time of publishing Tourism Research Australia advised that the economic contribution of tourism data in the NT Profile provides data on employment, Gross State Product and Gross Value Added for the NT as a whole without separately identifying the component attributable to tourism. As this data may have been amended since then, please contact Tourism Research Australia for clarification before using this particular data.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) clients – Client figures refer to the number of individuals enrolled in courses or modules with each client being counted only once regardless of the number of courses or modules they may be enrolled in.

Vocational Education and Training (VET) course enrolments – Course enrolment figures exclude students enrolled in module only activity. Students enrolled in more than one course are counted more than once in course enrolment figures.
