Population estimates for major population regions in Table 5 have been updated to include June 2008 data.

Projected number of households, States and territories-at 30 June has been moved from Table 20 to Table 21. Data previously contained in Table 21 (Projected population in households and projected household size, States and territories-at 30 June) has been removed from the publication. This data is still available in previous editions. New projections based on the 2006 Census are expected to be available in 2010.

Table 20 now contains household estimates based on the 2006 Census.


Data for 30 September 2001 to 30 June 2006 are final and based on the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. Data for the 2006-07 financial year are revised and data from 30 September 2007 onwards are preliminary. For further information refer to paragraph 7 of the Explanatory Notes.

Due to the collection and estimation methods applied to produce preliminary statistics, users should exercise caution when analysing and interpreting the most recent annual and quarterly estimates for all components of the estimated resident population, particularly when making time series comparisons.


Preliminary population estimates as at 30 June 2008 for SLAs, LGAs and SDs by sex and five-year age groups are intended to be released on 11 August 2009 in Population by Age and Sex, Regions of Australia, 2008 (cat. no. 3235.0).

Estimates of international migration into and out of Australia, interstate migration and overseas born residents of Australia for the 2007-08 financial year will be released on 28 July 2009 in Migration, Australia, 2007-08 (cat. no. 3412.0).
