What the ABS Demography Program produces

The demography program produces estimates of the total population by age, sex, country of birth, marital status and geographical distribution, estimates of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population and estimates of families and households. Regular statistics are also produced on births, deaths, marriages, divorces, overseas arrivals and departures, and internal migration. Projections of population, families and households according to specified demographic assumptions are published on a regular basis and produced for individual clients. Benchmarks are provided for ABS and other population surveys. In addition to reporting on these statistics, courses on understanding demographic data are conducted and an email newsletter is sent to major clients.
