There was an error in today's release of 2006 Census Ethnic Media Package.

The error affects the State of Usual Residence figures for all country of birth tables.

While the data itself is correct the figures have been transposed for:

    • South Australia and Western Australia
    • Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.

The Ethnic media package (250kB, xls) has been corrected and is now available on the ABS website.

Media who downloaded from the website before 4.30 PM (AEST), or media who received a CD-ROM at today's media briefings and national launch will need to check and amend reporting.

The ABS apologises for this inconvenience and will replace CD-ROM copies on request.
