Explanatory notes
Data are derived from surveys conducted by QGSO and other sources. Non-resident workers include fly-in/fly-out and drive-in/drive-out (FIFO/DIDO) mining and gas industry employees and contractors, construction workers and associated subcontractors. Data are a point in time measure, based on best information available at the time of survey.
Latest ABS Estimated Resident Populations (ERPs) by LGA and UCL are available on the Population Estimates page. FTE population estimates will be updated as new ERPs become available.
