Estimated Resident Population (ERP) is the official measure of the Australian population. ERP for sub-state regions (including SA2s and LGAs) is published annually, with a reference date of 30 June. Total population estimates for sub-state regions are available approximately nine months after the reference date while age-sex breakdowns are available about 13 months after the reference date.

Population estimates for Census years are based on Census data. Estimates are modelled out from Census years using population indicator data. These estimates are then broken down by age and sex using registered births and deaths data, and synthetic estimates of migration based on the previous Census.

Estimated Resident Population (ERP) is the official measure of the Australian population, based on the concept of usual residence. It refers to all people, regardless of nationality, citizenship or legal status, who usually live in Australia, with the exception of foreign diplomatic personnel and their families. It includes usual residents who are overseas for less than 12 months over a 16-month period. It excludes those who are in Australia for less than 12 months over a 16-month period.
