Data for 30 September 2001 to 30 June 2006 are final and based on the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. Data for 2006-07 and 2007-08 financial years have been revised and data from 30 September 2008 onwards are preliminary. For further information see 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 (ERP), particularly when making time series comparisons.


From March quarter 2010 (scheduled for release in September 2010), this publication will include estimated resident population (ERP) broken down by age and sex, and other associated data which have previously been published in Population by Age and Sex, Australian States and Territories (cat. no. 3201.0). The inclusion of age-sex data in this publication will ensure consistency between ERP totals and the relevant age-sex breakdowns at all times, particularly following revisions to ERP. The production of Population by Age and Sex, Australian States and Territories (cat. no. 3201.0) will cease following the release of June quarter 2010 data (scheduled for December 2010).


Changes in this issue are as follows:
  • Population estimates for major population regions in table 5 have been updated to 30 June 2009; and
  • Projected number of households in table 21 have been updated to data based on the 2006 Census and includes estimates for 2006 to 2011, 2016, 2021 and 2031.


An article titled 'Population growth: past, present and future' will be released in Australian Social Trends
(cat. no. 4102.0) on 30 June 2010.

Migration, Australia, 2008-09 (cat. no. 3412.0) will be released on 29 July 2010.

Population by Age and Sex, Regions of Australia, 2009 (cat. no. 3235.0) will be released on 5 August 2010.
