Population estimates
Population estimates by Indigenous status is a product compiled by the Queensland Government Statistician’s Office, which provides time series population data by Indigenous status, age and sex, for small areas in Queensland (local government areas and Statistical Areas Level 2). The estimates incorporate the latest data from the 2011 Census of Population and Housing and recently released Estimates and projections, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians (ABS 3238.0) from the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The data are available in tabular format, and informed by a data quality statement.

The Index of retail prices in Queensland regional centres, 2013 report compares the prices of a basket of household goods and services in Brisbane and selected regional Queensland centres. The data are expressed as index numbers where Brisbane has been given an index of 100 and all other centres have an index relative to Brisbane. The Index shows that prices paid by Queenslanders varied across the State by up to 33.0 per cent.

This release is also complemented by an interactive map.


Three reports for Queensland’s resource regions — the Bowen and Galilee Basins, the Surat Basin, and the Gladstone region — provide annual projections of fly-in/fly-out and drive-in/drive-out (FIFO/DIDO) workers on-shift for local government areas (LGAs) in these regions from 2014 to 2020. Each report presents four projection series, based on industry information regarding existing resource operations and future projects, and grouped according to the status of projects in the approvals process at the time of production.
