Data for 2017 are preliminary estimated resident population (ERP). In this dataset , state and territory ERPs are calculated as the sum of capital city and rest of state and match those published in Regional Population Growth, Australia (cat. no. 3218.0) on the 24 April 2018. This differs to state and territory population estimates published elsewhere in the publication, and used in state and territory level projections, which are based on the most recently published ERP from Australian Demographic Statistics (cat. no. 3101.0) on the 20 September 2018.
