PRELIMINARY REBASED POPULATION ESTIMATES
Population estimates for the recent intercensal period (September 2011 to June 2016) have been updated using information from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing. Estimated resident population (ERP) for September 2011 onwards in this publication are now based on the 2016 Census, unless footnoted otherwise.
Final intercensal ERP will be released in the December quarter 2017 issue of this publication. See the Technical Note for further information.
REVIEW OF OVERSEAS ARRIVAL AND DEPARTURES STATISTICS
Due to the removal of the Australian outgoing passenger card by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, the ABS reviewed its overseas arrivals and departures (OAD) statistics, methodology and processing systems in 2016-17. The primary aim was to maintain the supply and quality of OAD data, given its importance as input to a broad range of statistical collections, research and decision making. A revised time series of OAD data from July 2007 to June 2017, is available in the July 2017 issue of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0) which was released on 12 September 2017.
ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER POPULATION STATISTICS
This issue includes the first release of preliminary estimates of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population (table 10) and the non-Indiginous population (table 11) by state and territory, by sex and by five-year age groups as at 30 June 2016, based on 2016 Census of Population and Housing and Post Enumeration Survey results. These data are supported by two feature articles - the first highlights the features of the data and the second outlines the methodology used.
