Individual data cells may not sum to the Queensland total due to rounding.
 
(a) Occupied private dwellings and vacant private dwellings. Private dwellings include structural dwellings (e.g. houses, flats, townhouses) but exclude temporary dwellings (e.g. tents,
caravans). Non-private dwellings are excluded (e.g. hotels, hospitals, boarding schools, mining camps).
(b) Boundaries are based on 2014 Queensland local government areas.
(c) Occupancy rates are calculated by dividing the total population (including those in non-private dwellings) by the number of private dwellings (occupied and vacant) .
(d) The 2011 figure is an estimate based on estimated resident population (ERP).
(e) 2011 ERPs for this local government area have been derived using published statistical area level 2 and local government area ERP data.

Individual data cells may not sum to the Queensland total due to rounding.
 
(a) Occupied private dwellings and vacant private dwellings. Private dwellings include structural dwellings (e.g. houses, flats, townhouses) but exclude temporary dwellings (e.g. tents,
caravans). Non-private dwellings are excluded (e.g. hotels, hospitals, boarding schools, mining camps).
(b) Boundaries are based on 2014 Queensland local government areas.
(c) Occupancy rates are calculated by dividing the total population (including those in non-private dwellings) by the number of private dwellings (occupied and vacant) .
(d) The 2011 figure is an estimate based on estimated resident population (ERP).
(e) 2011 ERPs for this local government area have been derived using published statistical area level 2 and local government area ERP data.

Individual data cells may not sum to the Queensland total due to rounding.
 
(a) Occupied private dwellings and vacant private dwellings. Private dwellings include structural dwellings (e.g. houses, flats, townhouses) but exclude temporary dwellings (e.g. tents,
caravans). Non-private dwellings are excluded (e.g. hotels, hospitals, boarding schools, mining camps).
(b) Boundaries are based on 2014 Queensland local government areas.
(c) Occupancy rates are calculated by dividing the total population (including those in non-private dwellings) by the number of private dwellings (occupied and vacant) .
(d) The 2011 figure is an estimate based on estimated resident population (ERP).
(e) 2011 ERPs for this local government area have been derived using published statistical area level 2 and local government area ERP data.
