Estimated Resident Population (ERP)
The official population of the EMRC area as of the 30th June 2014, is 358,714.
The Estimated Resident Population is the OFFICIAL EMRC area population for 2014.
Populations are counted and estimated in various ways. The most comprehensive population count available in Australia is derived from the Census of Population and Housing conducted by the Australian Bureau of Statistics every five years. However the Census count is NOT the official population of the EMRC area. To provide a more accurate population figure which is updated more frequently than every five years, the Australian Bureau of Statistics also produces "Estimated Resident Population" (ERP) numbers for the EMRC area.
See data notes for a detailed explanation of different population types, how they are calculated and when to use each one.
