Victoria's Estimated Resident Population (ERP) at the end of any given period is the estimated population at the beginning of the period plus the sum of three components: natural increase, net overseas migration and net interstate migration.

At the end of September quarter 2008, Victoria's ERP was 5,340,300 people, an increase of 26,500 (0.50%) since the end of June quarter 2008. Over the same period, Australia's ERP grew by 110,700 (0.52%). Victoria's ERP increased by 97,000 (1.85%) over the 12 months since the end of September quarter 2007.

The largest component of Victoria's population growth in September quarter 2008 was net overseas migration (a gain of 17,900 people). Natural increase (births minus deaths) accounted for a further increase of 8,600 people.

Net interstate migration has historically meant loss of population from Victoria to other states and territories. In the preceding five years the only population gain from this source was recorded in March quarter 2006. Net interstate migration for Victoria in September quarter 2008 was zero.
