APPENDIX 1 ESTIMATED RESIDENT POPULATION
This table is provided to highlight the difference between the Census 'as enumerated' and 'usual residence' counts and the Estimated Resident Population (ERP). The ERP is the official ABS estimate of the Australian population. It is based on the Census of Population and Housing usual residence counts and is updated quarterly using births, deaths and migration data.
(a) Number of persons counted in each State/Territory on Census Night, 7 August 2001.
(b) Number of persons usually resident in each State/Territory on 7 August 2001 regardless of where they were counted on Census Night.
(c) These are census usual resident counts, plus Australian residents temporarily overseas on Census Night, plus the estimated census underenumeration, plus deaths and less births, net overseas migration and net interstate migration occurring between 30 June and 7 August 2001, giving estimated resident population at 30 June 2001.
