'Understanding Demographic Data,' the popular one-day seminar offered by ABS Demography, will be held in Sydney in November 2003 and in Canberra early in 2004.

The seminar provides an understanding of the demographic data framework and the processes which shape the population, and includes practical exercises in the analysis of demographic data. Key issues covered include:

        • Relationship of Census counts to Estimated Resident Population
        • Components of population growth: births; deaths; internal and overseas migration
        • How the ABS produces population estimates and projections, including for Indigenous people and small areas
        • The relevance of demographic data to society and the economy
        • Tools for demographic analysis, with practical exercises
        • Population dynamics such as population momentum, ageing and migration effects on the population profile.
