Notes on the data: Aboriginal population projections
Total Aboriginal population projections by 5 year age groups: Per cent who are aged 0-4 years to 65+ years, projected 2016 estimated resident population (ERP) (non-ABS)
Policy context: The value of the population projections is in providing an estimate of what the population might look like in the future, in different geographic areas across the country. This is of particular relevance as Australia's Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population ages.
Notes: For more information about the projected 2016 estimated resident population (ERP) (non-ABS) developed by Prometheus Information on behalf of the Australian Government Department of Health, please refer to the Indigenous estimates information page.
