Data are available either for individual years or every fifth year, depending on the dataset and its source data. Where possible a 2023 estimate has been included based on the latest data published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Data are available for the Estimated Resident Population, the components of population change, population age distribution, households and dwellings.
