PRELIMINARY REBASED POPULATION ESTIMATES
This is the second release containing preliminary rebased Estimated Resident Population (ERP) data based on the 2011 Census of Population and Housing. Estimates from the September 2011 quarter onwards are based on the 2011 Census, unless footnoted otherwise.
ADVICE ON THE USE OF PRELIMINARY REBASED ERP
The rebasing process resulted in Australia's preliminary estimated resident population for the period September 2006 to June 2011 being revised down, which has affected estimates of population growth. This release repeats and expands on advice on how to use the data (see Feature Article: ABS advice on the use of 2011 preliminary rebased population estimates and the Technical Note: The Impact of Improvements to the 2011 PES on Measuring Population Growth (2006-2011)).
PROPOSED ABS TREATMENT OF INTERCENSAL ERROR
The Intercensal Error for the 2006-2011 period is the highest on record and the ABS is formulating an appropriate treatment for this in the final rebasing process. This release includes a short discussion paper highlighting the current position as well as an invitation for public comment on the issue (see Feature Article: Proposed ABS Treatment of Intercensal Error for 2006-2011).
ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER POPULATION STATISTICS
