The following are changes in this issue of Regional Statistics, Northern Territory.


All data is presented, where available, by Statistical Subdivision (SSD) and Statistical Local Area (SLA) according to the geographical boundaries defined in the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) 2004 (cat. no. 1216.0), unless otherwise indicated. 2006 Census of Population and Housing data is presented according to ASGC 2006 boundaries. Several tables are presented using geographical boundaries other than SSDs, including Indigenous Regions (previously Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission Regions) and Tourism Areas/Regions.

Changes from previous issue

To increase usability of the publication some tables are no longer available as a time series. Where the presentation of time series data does not detrimentally affect the usability of tables, the time series format has been maintained.

Where available 2001 Census of Population and Housing has been updated with 2006 Census of Population and Housing data.

The following data was not available for inclusion in this issue:

  • Experimental Estimated Resident Population by Indigenous status;

  • Transport infrastructure;

Concepts and definitions

As the data has been sourced from a wide variety of statistical collections, both ABS and non-ABS, care should be taken when analysing the data as time periods, definitions, scope, coverage and methodologies may differ. Some concepts, definitions and extended footnotes are covered in the Glossary; however more detailed information can be obtained from the relevant publication, data collection and/or agency noted at the bottom of each table as the source.

National Regional Profiles

This publication complements regional data for the NT published in National Regional Profile (cat. no. 1379.0.55.001) on the ABS web site.
