DoHA population projections:
DoHA projections of the total population are based on the 2006 Census. These projections were prepared (as SLA level) for DoHA by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) according to assumptions agreed to by DoHA.
DoHA Indigenous population projections were prepared from ABS Indigenous Experimental 2006 ERP data (at SLA level) projected forward so as to align with published ABS Indigenous Experimental Estimates and Projections (ABS cat. no. 3238.0, series B) at the state and national level.
DoHA projections by remoteness areas are prepared by summing SLA projections to Remoteness Areas.
