Revising population estimates after a census is a key part of the methodology to produce mid-year population estimates. A consistent series is required because population estimates are an important input in a wide range of National Statistics. They are also used for calculating rates and performance measures, informing local and national policy, weighting surveys, planning, resource allocation and in modelling the economy.
