Most recent data available for 2015 National Healthcare Agreement (NHA) performance reporting: 2014.

Department of Social Services (DSS) population projections:

DSS projections of the total population are based on the 2011 Census. These projections were prepared (at Statistical Area (SA2) level) for DSS by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) according to assumptions agreed to by DSS. Projections were summed to ASGS Remoteness Areas using ABS Australian Statistical Geography Standard: Correspondence, July 2011 (ABS cat. no. 1270.0.55.006).

DSS Indigenous population projections were prepared from ABS Estimates of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians (ABS cat. no. 3238.0.55.001) projected forward so as to align with published projections in Estimate and Projections, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, 2011 to 2026 (ABS cat. no. 3238.0, series B) at State and Remoteness Area level.
