The course covers the relationship between Census data and Estimated Resident Population data; components of population growth; population projections; estimating the population of small areas; some tools for analysing demographic data and population dynamics. The course costs $342 per participant and includes a light lunch, course notes and a copy of Australian Demographic Statistics, Cat. no. 3101.0.
