HOUSEHOLDS


There were 7,249,900 resident households in Australia at June 2000, an increase of 123,400 or 2% since June 1999 and 582,200 or 9% since June 1995.

Household estimates back to September 1991 have been revised to incorporate a statistical smoothing technique which reduces volatility but retains the trend of the time series. Further information is available in Demography Working Paper 2001/3 - Improving Household Estimates.

While annual estimates are published for capital cities/balances of States in Australian Demographic Statistics (Cat. No. 3101.0), quarterly estimates are available on request.
