3 SMALL AREA POPULATION PROJECTIONS
A set of 1999-2019 statistical local area and postal area population projections using ASGC 1996 boundaries is now available. The projections are consistent with Series II outlined in Population Projections, Australia, 1999 to 2101 (Cat. No. 3222.0) and take account of the latest demographic trends and land use indicators available to the ABS. While the ABS takes responsibility for the method employed, the assumptions used are the responsibility of the client and the projections are not official ABS statistics. The cost of the projections, by five year age group and sex, for all statistical local areas in a State/Territory ranges from $1,120 in NT to $1,680 in NSW. For Australia the cost is $2,800.
Projections using alternative assumptions and boundaries can be provided.
