Population estimates by Indigenous status

In response to a statistical need within the Queensland Government, the Queensland Government Statistician's Office (QGSO) has developed detailed population estimates by Indigenous status.

The estimates are available by:

These estimates are the result of a synthesis — the combining of data from two or more sources to form a new data product. In this case, data from the 2001, 2006 and 2011 Censuses of Population and Housing have been combined with small–area population estimates of the total population, small–area population estimates by Indigenous status for 2011, and projections of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), to form a new set of population estimates by Indigenous status.

These QGSO estimates should be used with caution. These estimates have been made available by age and sex, Indigenous status and SA2/LGA categories, and while all care and attention have been paid, a high degree of accuracy at this level of disaggregation should not be assumed.

It is strongly recommended that the estimates be aggregated (for example, into larger geographical units or broader age groups) before being used. In addition, data cells may not sum to published totals due to rounding. The SA2 and LGA estimates have been modelled independently, therefore it is recommended that SA2 estimates not be aggregated to LGA level, as results may be inconsistent.

These estimates have been compiled using the latest information available at time of production. This information is subject to change and revision. As such, direct comparisons should not be made between this edition and past and future editions.

A data quality statement and methodology paper have been developed to support the estimates.
