CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
This is the first release following the process of final rebasing to the 2011 Census and recasting of ERP back to September 1991. For further information on these processes, see Australian Demographic Statistics - December 2012 (cat. no. 3101.0).
Following the release of Estimates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, June 2011 (cat. no. 3238.0.55.001), tables 11 and 12 have been updated.
Net overseas migration (NOM) revisions have changed from a biannual to a quarterly revision cycle.
After consulting with a range of experts, the ABS and AIHW are recommending that the 30 June 2001 standard population continue to be used for age-standardisation analysis until the final 30 June 2026 estimates are available. For more information, see Feature Article: Which Population to use for Age Standardisation? and the associated data cube.
UPDATES TO SUB-STATE POPULATION ESTIMATES
Final sub-state total population estimates from 1991 to 2011 were released in Regional Population Growth, Australia, 2012 (cat. no. 3218.0) on 30 August 2013. Age and sex breakdowns of these estimates were released simultaneously in Population by Age and Sex, Regions of Australia, 2012 (cat. no. 3235.0).
REBUILD OF THE OVERSEAS ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES SYSTEM
The ABS is currently completing a rebuild of the Overseas Arrivals and Departures (OAD) system, to improve the quality of OAD data and both preliminary and final NOM estimates. This will improve imputations for missing traveller data. The first outputs from this rebuild will be included in the determination of the June quarter 2013 ERP, scheduled for release on 17 December 2013. Revised OAD data will be released in Overseas Arrivals and Departures - Australia, January 2014 (cat. no. 3401.0), scheduled for release on 11 March 2014.
