FINAL REBASED POPULATION ESTIMATES

This issue contains final rebased Estimated Resident Population (ERP) data based on the 2011 Census of Population and Housing for the September 2006 - June 2011 period. Data for September 2011 onwards is Preliminary. For more information on data statuses, see paragraph 7 of the Explanatory Notes.


RECAST POPULATION ESTIMATES

In addition to final rebased ERP, this release contains revised historical ERP for September 1991 to June 2006. This process is known as 'recasting', and is a response to a methodological improvement in the Census Post Enumeration Survey. For more information on recasting, see Feature Article: Recasting 20 Years of ERP.

Spreadsheets containing recast estimates for the September 1991 - June 2006 period have also been released with this issue and are available for download from the Australian Demographic Statistics - December 2012 quarter (cat. no. 3101.0) page of the ABS website.


STANDARD POPULATION

The ABS and AIHW are jointly proposing that the standard population (30 June 2001) is not revised to 30 June 2011, but instead continues to be used until final 30 June 2026 estimates are available. Consultation on this topic will occur, ahead of an information paper being published in September 2013.


NOTICE OF CHANGE TO REVISION CYCLE

Starting with the March 2013 issue scheduled for release on 26 September 2013, NOM revisions will change from a biannual to a quarterly revision cycle.
