Estimated Stocks of Dwellings, Western Australia
|Page tools: RSS Search this Product|
NAME OF ORGANISATION
Using Census of Population and Housing counts as the base, dwelling commencements are added and dwelling demolitions subtracted to compile estimates of the stock of private dwellings in Census Collection Districts (CCDs) and local government areas.
The estimates represent Census dwelling counts adjusted to take account of postcensul variations in dwelling numbers. As such, they are an indicator of geographic areas of intercensal housing and population growth (or decline) and are sought after by government as an aid to policy and planning.
Population and private dwellings from the Census of Population and Housing together with all commencements and demolitions as reported by local government authorities.
Following each Population and Housing Census, a base file is created containing, for each CCD, the number of houses; dwellings other than houses; population; occupied dwellings; and total dwellings. The number of dwelling commencements and demolitions reported monthly by local and other government authorities are aggregated quarterly and merged with this base file to create an updated master file to produce counts of stocks of dwellings at that point in time. This updated master file then becomes the base file for the following quarter. This process continues until the next Census of Population and Housing.
Four tables are produced:
1. Population and private dwellings in CCDs for selected Statistical Local Areas
2. Population and private dwellings in Statistical Local Areas
3. Estimated Dwellings by type of dwelling in CCDs for selected Statistical Local Areas
Tables 1 and 2 are published annually as at 30 June in "Estimated Stocks of Dwellings, Western Australia" (ABS Cat. No. 8705.5)
