(a) The ABS has been unable to estimate population change from June 2002 onwards for a number of Indigenous Council areas in Queensland introduced to the ASGC since the 2001 Census. This may have an impact on population estimates for the remaining areas. Population estimates for these areas for June 2005 and 2006 are denoted 'np' (not for publication). The latest available estimates for these areas can be found in the spreadsheets available under the Details tab of this issue. For more information see paragraphs 25 to 30 of the Explanatory Notes.
