Counting the Population

The recently released, Population Estimates: Concepts, Sources and Methods, 2009 (cat. no 3228.0.55.001) provides a description of the concepts, sources and methods used by the ABS in the production of population estimates.

This publication is a great resource if you're interested in finding out more about:
  • the range of population estimates produced by the ABS
  • some of the major uses for these population estimates
  • the methods and data used to produce population estimates at the national/state and statistical local area (SLA) levels
  • the method used to produce population estimates for customised geography
  • components of population growth and of selected sub-populations
  • the data sources used to produce population estimates

For additional information on population concepts, see Information Paper: Population Concepts, 2008 (cat. no. 3107.0.55.006).
