CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Data for 30 September 2001 to 30 June 2006 are final and based on the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. Data from the 30 September 2006 onwards are preliminary. For the current status refer to paragraph 7 of the Explanatory Notes.
Data for births, natural increase, total population growth and estimated resident population for the March, June and September quarters in 2007 have been revised in Victoria, and to a lesser extent New South Wales and other states and territories. This revision was due to the receipt of additional birth records from the Victorian Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages for 2007.
The preliminary number of births in Queensland for the December quarter 2007 is higher than any December quarter in the last 25 years. Changes in procedures for processing birth registrations by the Queensland Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages has contributed to the increased number of birth registrations in the quarter for Queensland and Australia.
Further, amendments to the A New Tax System (Family Assistance) Act 1999 which took effect from 1 July 2007 requires the registration of, or application for registration of the birth of a child as a condition for applying for the Baby Bonus. The ABS will be analysing changes in the interval between the date of occurrence and the date of registration of births since this legislative change and reporting the results in Births, Australia, 2007 (cat. no. 3301.0) in October 2008.
Population by Age and Sex, Australian States and Territories, June 2002 to June 2007 (cat. no. 3201.0) will be released on 27 June 2008. This issue will contain final rebased estimated resident population (ERP) by age and sex for June 2002 though to June 2006 based on the 2006 Census.
The final 2006 estimates of resident populations for sub-state areas (Statistical Local Areas (SLAs) and Local Government Areas (LGAs)) for June 2002 through to June 2006 will be released on 19 August 2008 in data cubes which will be added to Regional Population Growth, Australia, 1996 to 2006 (cat. no. 3218.0). Preliminary population estimates for SLAs and LGAs as at June 2007 by sex and five-year age groups will also be released on 19 August 2008 in Population by Age and Sex, Regions of Australia, 2007 (cat. no. 3235.0).
