Most recent data available for 2010 CRC baseline report: 2008.
For data by Indigenous status: ABS Indigenous Experimental Estimates and Projections (Indigenous Population) Series B as at 30 June 2008.
For data by socioeconomic status: calculated using the ABS’ Index of Relative Socioeconomic Disadvantage and Estimated Resident Population (ERP) by Statistical Local Area (SLA) as at 30 June 2008. Each SLA in Australia is ranked and divided into quintiles in a population-based manner, such that each quintile has approximately 20% of the population.
For data by remoteness: ABS ERP as at 30 June 2008, by remoteness areas, as specified in the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC).
