The population figures used in the forecasts for 2001 are derived from estimated resident population from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. These figures are published at the Statistical Local Area level, which are extrapolated to Census Collection District (CCDs) and then aggregated to the chosen small area, sometime splitting CCDs if necessary.These figures are subject to change or updating from time to time, most notably after census release (usually one to two years after the census is conducted).
The household estimates used in the forecasts for 2001 were based on age and sex-specific population propensities by different household types. Usual residents’ estimates by Census Collection District were extrapolated to Estimated Resident Population and then multiplied by household factors to give estimated ‘Resident Households’.The multiplying factor varies depending on the household type (and the area), such as a factor of 1 for persons living in lone person households to 0.5 for an adult in couple families with dependent households. Children and other dependents, such as elderly parents, are not assumed to ‘form’ households.
