3. LINKAGE RESULTS
TABLE 2 - LINKAGE RATES, By selected characteristics
The linkage rates that were achieved for the ACLD were relatively consistent across most sub-populations and were in line with expected results. Compared with the national average of 82%, the sub-populations which achieved the highest linkage rates were persons:
The subpopulations which achieved the lowest linkage rates were persons:
Traditionally, the Census Post Enumeration Survey (PES) has shown that the Census has higher rates of undercount for people of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander origin, those aged between 20 and 29 and for those in the Northern Territory. As expected, the lower ACLD linkage rates broadly aligned with the same groups that experience higher levels of undercount in the Census. One additional group that had lower linkage rates were persons aged 75 and over at the time of the 2006 Census who, due to age, had an increased risk of death over the ensuing five years. Further information on Census undercount can be found in Census of Population and Housing - Details of Undercount, 2011 (cat. no. 2940.0)
Further data cubes, demonstrating the linkage rates for various sub-populations are available as an attachment to this Information paper.
