Estimated resident population (ERP) by country of birth is recast from 1996 to 2006, final rebased from 2006 to 2016, and preliminary from 2017. It may differ to previously published data. See paragraph 9 of the Explanatory Notes for further information.
The ABS has identified an unrealistically high number of deaths from 2012 to 2014 being attributed to persons born in Isle of Man. For the Australian population born in Isle of Man, this has resulted in an underestimate of ERP for the period 2012 to 2015.

For any age distribution, the median age is that age which divides the relevant population into two equal parts, half being younger than the value, and half being older than it. In this data cube, the median age is published for the total population, overseas-born population, each main region of birth and each selected country of birth. It has been calculated for those countries of birth with a population of 100 people or more.
