To arrive at the estimated resident population for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population, the Census count (on a usual residence basis) is adjusted for instances in which Indigenous status is unknown and for net undercount. For the purposes of population estimates, Census records with unknown Indigenous status are allocated as either Indigenous or non-Indigenous according to the distribution of stated responses within each age group, sex, Census form type and geographic area. For more information on the ERP see Population Distribution, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians (cat. no. 4705.0) and the Indigenous estimated resident population - method of calculation feature article in Australian Demographic Statistics, March quarter 2007 (cat. no. 3101.0).
Usual residence counts are generally used for geographical analysis as they include persons away from home at the time of Census and exclude temporary visitors for any given location. Nationally, 30,853 Indigenous people (7%) were identified and counted at a location other than their usual address at the time of the 2006 Census. Unless otherwise stated, place of usual residence counts are used in the population characteristics chapters in this report.
