PHA boundaries have been updated to reflect the 2016 ASGS. Where PHA boundaries have changed between 2011 and 2016, the data for non-Census indicators have been created using an Australian Bureau of Statistics SA2 correspondence based on 2011 population distributions. For PHA areas such as Colac Region/ Otway (85.2%), Moyne - East/ Moyne - West (-30.3%), Bli Bli/ Diddilibah – Rosemount (125.3%) and Noosa Hinterland (-26.4%) where the population has changed substantially between 2011 and 2016, the data should be treated with caution.
