** The estimate has a relative standard error greater than 50%.
(a) Indigenous confinements accounted for 80% of the total.
(b) Estimates based on Series C projections.
(c) Divorce figures relate to State or Territory of registration which is based on the location of the Family Court where the divorce is granted and registered. These figures can give a biased view of divorces in States and Territories. Due to the large number of divorces granted in the ACT to usual residents of another State, the rates for the ACT are not representative of the ACT population and hence are not published.
(d) Data are incomplete.
(e) NT estimates relate to predominantly urban areas only.
