Australian population grid data released

Australian population grid data released

The first Population grid released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) uses 2011 Census data to provide a snapshot of Australia’s population and population density.

The grid displays Usual Resident Population (URP) from the 2011 Census of Population and Housing using 1 square kilometre grid cells across Australia. The resolution of the grid therefore offers a measure of population density for Australia. The data has been modelled from perturbed Mesh Block level URP values.
