Understanding Demographic Data in Darwin and Sydney

The next Understanding Demographic Data courses are scheduled for 23 October in Darwin and 2 and 3 November in Sydney.

The aim of this one day course is to provide an understanding of the framework of demographic data and the processes which shape the population. The course covers the relationship between Census data and Estimated Resident Population data; components of population growth; projections; estimating the population of small areas; some tools for analysing demographic data and population dynamics. It costs $327 per participant, including a light lunch.

The course continues to be well received and is contributing to a better understanding and use of ABS's demographic data among a wide range of clients from Commonwealth, State and Local Government bodies, business and community groups.
