The estimated resident population of each ethnic group at 30 June in the census year is based on the census usually resident population counts updated for:
- non-response to the census ethnicity question
- net census undercount (as measured by a post-enumeration survey)
- residents temporarily overseas on census night
- births, deaths and net migration between census night and 30 June
- reconciliation with demographic estimates at the youngest ages.
The estimated resident population is not directly comparable with the census usually resident population count because of these adjustments.
