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. Preliminary rebased 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.
Following the introduction of the Norfolk Island Legislation Amendment Act 2015, the population of Norfolk Island is included in the population of Australia for the first time in this publication.
CHANGES TO OVERSEAS ARRIVALS AND DEPARTURES, AUSTRALIA (CAT. NO. 3401.0)
Changes to the format of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0) are planned for the 12 September 2017 release.
Due to planned removal of the Australian outgoing passenger card by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection, the ABS reviewed its overseas arrivals and departures statistics, methodology and processing systems. Currently, the focus of the publication is on short-term visitor arrivals and short-term resident departures with trend and seasonally adjusted data provided for both series. The focus of the publication will shift to short-term visitor arrivals and short-term resident returns. Additional information is available in the Notes section of the issue released in May 2017.
It is expected there will be minimal impact to net overseas migration.
