Scheduled annual revisions for the 2006-07 financial year include:
The most significant revision relates to the estimate for 2006-07 net overseas migration which was revised from a preliminary estimate of 177,600 to a final estimate of 232,800. Page 6 provides more details.
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.
