Population projections illustrate how the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population would change in the future as a result of certain assumptions. This dataset presents three scenarios, comprising combinations of different rates of fertility (x3), paternity (x3), mortality (x3), interstate migration (x1) and overseas migration (x1).

The ABS’ population projections do not predict or forecast how the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population will look in the future. They do not incorporate any non-demographic factors which influence population change, such as changes in an individual’s decision to identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, government policy, economic factors, improvements in health treatment or the occurrence of natural disasters. Projections only show how the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population would change if the demographic assumptions made were to eventuate over the projection period. This may or may not happen.
