13 Current publications produced by the ABS are listed in the Catalogue of Publications and Products (Cat. no. 1101.0). The ABS also issues on Tuesdays and Fridays a Release Advice (Cat. no. 1105.0) which lists publications to be released in the next few days. The Catalogue and Release Advice are available from any ABS office.
DATA AVAILABLE ON REQUEST
14 The ABS also has other unpublished statistics available including ERP age-sex data by single year of age. Inquiries should be made to the National Information Service on 1300 135 070.
15 This is the final published issue of Population by Age and Sex, Queensland (Cat. no. 3235.3). In future years the age-sex data will be made available in electronic format in a SuperTABLE dataset as companion data in AusStats. Data at all levels within the Australian Standard Geographical Classification main structure will be included, as well as Local Government Areas. The new companion data will also effectively replace Estimated Resident Population by Age and Sex in Statistical Local Areas, Queensland: Data on Floppy Disk (Cat. no. 3227.3). Non-AusStats users can obtain this data by contacting Client Services (see back page of this publication for details)
The dependency ratio relates to the number of children aged 0-14 years and persons aged 65 years and over per 100 persons aged 15-64 years.
Estimated resident population (ERP)
Estimated resident population data are estimates of the Australian population obtained by adding to the estimated population at the beginning of each period the components of natural increase (on a usual residence basis) and net overseas migration. For the States and Territories, account is also taken of estimated interstate movements involving a change of usual residence. After each census, estimates for the preceding intercensal period are revised by incorporating an additional quarterly adjustment (intercensal discrepancy) to ensure that the total intercensal increase agrees with the difference between the estimated resident populations at the two respective census dates.
Estimates of the resident population are based on adjusted (for underenumeration) census counts by place of usual residence, to which are added the number of Australian residents estimated to have been temporarily overseas at the time of the census.
The concept of estimated resident population links people to a place of usual residence within Australia. Usual residence is that place where each person has lived or intends to live for six months or more in a reference year.
The tables in this publication are at the levels of Statistical Local Area, Statistical District, Statistical Division and Local Government Area, as defined by the 2000 edition of the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC).
*Legal Local Government Areas (LGAs). These areas are the spatial units which represent the geographical areas of incorporated local government councils and incorporated community government councils (CGCs) where the CGC is of sufficient size and statistical significance. The various types of LGAs are cities (C), areas (A), rural cities (RC), towns (T), shires (S), district councils (DC) and municipalities (M).
*Statistical Districts (S Dists). These consist of selected, significant, predominantly urban areas in Australia which are not located within a Capital City SD. Statistical Districts enable comparable statistics to be produced about these selected urban areas.
*Statistical Divisions (SDs). These consist of one or more Statistical Subdivisions (SSDs). The divisions are designed to be relatively homogeneous regions characterised by identifiable social and economic units within the region, under the unifying influence of one or more major towns or cities.
*Statistical Subdivisions (SSDs). These are of intermediate size, between SLAs and SDs. In aggregate, they cover the whole of Australia without gaps or overlaps. They are defined as socially and economically homogeneous regions characterised by identifiable links between the inhabitants. In the non-urban areas an SSD is characterised by identifiable links between the economic units with
Further information concerning statistical areas is contained in Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC), 2000 (Cat. no. 1216.0).
After each census, estimates for the preceding intercensal period are provided by incorporating an additional quarterly adjustment to ensure that the total intercensal increase agrees with the difference between the estimated resident populations at the two respective census dates. For a detailed description see the ABS information paper Population Estimates: Concepts, Sources and Methods (Cat. no. 3228.0).
The age at which half the population is older and half is younger. A median is a measure of central tendency. It is a mid value which divides a population distribution into two, with half the observations falling below it and half above. Unlike averages (means) medians are not usually skewed by extreme observations.
Excess of births over deaths.
Net interstate migration
The difference between the number of persons who have changed their place of usual residence by moving into a given State or Territory and the number who have changed their place of usual residence by moving out of that State or Territory. This difference may be either positive or negative.
Net oversease migration
Net overseas migration is net permanent and long-term overseas migration plus an adjustment for the net effect of category jumping. This net effect may be either positive or negative.
For Queensland, population growth is the sum of natural increase, net overseas migration, net interstate migration and an allowance for intercensal discrepancy.
The sex ratio relates to the number of males per 100 females.
