OPPORTUNITIES TO DISCUSS REBASING PLANS WITH ABS
A key component of ABS plans for the rebasing of population estimates involves keeping a wide range of stakeholders informed as the work progresses including discussing and explaining methodologies to be used, providing more information on detailed release plans and advising progress updates.
Stakeholder meetings already conducted include:
The release of this information paper is also an opportunity for outlining plans for stakeholders and seeking additional comments and feedback from a wider range of data users and stakeholders (see details at the end of the paper).
Looking ahead, the ABS has planned the following stakeholder engagement opportunities.
TABLE 5: SCHEDULE OF STAKEHOLDER MEETINGS AND EVENTS
Soon after the release of preliminary rebased ERP, scheduled for 20 June 2012, it is proposed that ABS conducts either a workshop for specific key stakeholders or an online seminar/presentation so that stakeholders can be briefed on key features and technical matters regarding the rebasing of population estimates, engage in discussion with key ABS demographers and methodologists and ask detailed questions. Such an engagement opportunity could consist of an on-line recorded video presentation, a video conference or a series of face-to-face discussions and workshops. The ABS is seeking feedback on these options by 12 December 2011 so that the appropriate arrangements can be put in place.
For further information or questions, or to provide feedback on proposals in this information paper, please contact Population Estimates and Projections, Phil Browning on 02 6252 6639 or email <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
