ESTIMATION

As part of the estimation process, the LFS estimates of Indigenous persons employed, unemployed and not in the labour force are calculated in such a way as to add to independent estimates of the size and structure of the Indigenous population. Independent population estimates (benchmarks) for the Indigenous population aged 15 years and over by sex, broad age groups and remoteness type, for each state and territory of Australia, as at 30 June, were used for each year of estimates. These benchmarks reflect the low series population projections based on the 2006 Census as published in Experimental Estimates and Projections, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, 1991 to 2021 (cat. no. 3238.0).

These projections are not predictions or forecasts, but are projections of Census data reflecting the growth in population which would occur if certain assumptions about future levels of fertility, mortality, migration and unexplained growth were to prevail over the projection period.

Where data in this publication are presented by geographic area (such as remoteness, or state or territory), the data are based on a respondent's place of enumeration (i.e. the location of where the respondent was interviewed for the survey).
