The annual update of the Australian Historical Population Statistics was released on the 29 September 2003. Where possible the latest figures have been added, and the data revised based on the 2001 census results. The electronic product includes 105 spreadsheets which contains a wide range of time-series demographic data going back where possible to the beginnings of European settlement (1788) of Australia. Statistics are included on population size and growth, population distribution, population age-sex structure, births, deaths, migration, marriages and divorces. The electronic spreadsheets can be accessed through AusStats under Data Cubes.

Two new spreadsheets have been created with this update. Both new tables (table 16 and 86) are 2001 census based. They contain figures on the Indigenous population and the population by country of birth respectively. Due to the inclusion of these new spreadsheets, table numbers have changed since the last update.
