General Brief for all Statistical Publications

Census publications provide easily accessible and basic Census information to many users. There will be two types of publication available from the 2001 Census - those traditionally called statistical publications and thematic publications. Statistical publications contain mainly data with a minimum of descriptive commentary about the statistics presented. Thematic publications, as the name suggests, present a series of data on a particular theme with a substantial amount of analysis and commentary on the data presented.

As in 1996, there will be two releases of data from the 2001 Census. The majority of census topics, being easy to process, will be included in the First Release. Those topics which require more complex processing will not be available until the Second Release. Users should be aware that some statistical publications will be based on First Release data, while others will include the full range of data available after the Second Release.

Census Characteristics publications include population counts based on place of enumeration. For 2001 they will also include counts based on place of usual residence (URP). These counts should not be confused with ABS official estimates contained in the Estimated Resident publications. The Estimated Resident Population is based on URP but includes adjustments for overseas visitors, undercounting, and Australian residents who were temporarily overseas on Census night. Further information can be found in the ERP publications product brief.

General Brief for Estimated Resident Population Publications

The Estimated Resident Population (ERP) publications contain the official ABS Australian population figures. Two publications containing ERP data will be released: Australian Demographic Statistics - 2001 Census Edition, December Quarter 2001 and Regional Population Growth - 2001 Census Edition, June 1996 and June 2001. The data in these publications are derived by applying the following adjustments to the usual residence Census counts:
  • removing overseas visitors who were in Australia on Census night from the Census counts;
  • adjusting the Census counts for undercounting using results of the Post Enumeration Survey;
  • including Australian residents who were temporarily absent overseas on Census night; and
  • backcasting the resulting estimates which relate to 6 August 1996 to 30 June 1996 using births, deaths and migration data.
