Mid-year population estimates - age distribution errors - 1 October 2015

We have recently become aware of errors mainly affecting the age distribution of the mid-year population estimates for 2002 to 2014. This is because of an issue with an input data set used in the calculation of the mid-year estimates, as well as minor unrelated processing errors. Full details of the errors can be found in the Population section of this website.

Correction 8 May 2015

Figure 12a has been corrected so that the key title now reads 'Percentage change' instead of 'Population density (persons per square kilometer)'. The impact of this correction is minimal as it was purely a labeling  issue; the contents of the map and key were correct.
