CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The order and content of the tables in the PDF and datacubes of this publication have changed to simplify and better present the data in these tables. All content that has been removed is still available elsewhere in the publication or the ABS Web site.
PRELIMINARY REBASED POPULATION ESTIMATES
Population estimates for the recent intercensal period (September 2011 to June 2016) have been updated using information from the 2016 Census of Population and Housing. Estimated resident population (ERP) for September 2011 onwards in this publication are now based on the 2016 Census, unless footnoted otherwise.
Final intercensal ERP will be released in the December quarter 2017 issue of this publication. See the Technical Note for further information.
REVIEW OF NET OVERSEAS MIGRATION STATISTICS
Due to the removal of the Australian outgoing passenger card by the Department of Home Affairs, the ABS has reviewed its net overseas migration (NOM) statistics, methodology and processing systems. Preliminary NOM estimates for September 2017, the first based on the new methodology, are being released in this issue for the first time. For more information see Explanatory Note 16.
UPCOMING CHANGE TO METHODOLOGY FOR SUB-STATE POPULATION ESTIMATES
Sub-state population estimates for 30 June 2017 and onward will be prepared using a new, component-based methodology. Estimates will now be prepared by adding natural increase (births minus deaths) and net internal and overseas migration to the base population. The first release of estimates prepared using this new methodology will be in the 2016-17 issue of Regional Population Growth, Australia (cat. no. 3218.0) on 24 April 2018. This release will include population estimates, as well as each of the components of population change for SA2s and LGAs for 2016-17, allowing users to better understand the main drivers behind population change for sub-state areas.
