Demographic estimates and projections - concepts, sources and methods

Want a better understanding of why and how demographic estimates and projections are derived? Need information on the methods used by ABS to produce population estimates at the national, State and local area levels? Information is available via the Themes/Demography section of the ABS web site: www.abs.gov.au. There are additional sections on data sources, household estimates, population projections, census undercount and Indigenous population estimates. There is also a useful glossary of demographic terms.
