Population and migration : understanding the numbers /

by Australia. Productivity Commission.

Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Australia. Productivity Commission 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: December 2010 Bibliography : p. 83-92Summary: Some useful attempts have been made to make population-related statistics more accessible to the general public. The ABS and the Department of Immigration and Citizenship ? the organisations responsible for collecting the data ? produce detailed supporting publications explaining how the data are collected and what the statistics mean. Prominent demographic researchers, such as Peter McDonald, Graeme Hugo, Bob Birrell and others, have written papers examining particular aspects of population and migration statistics. The aim of this paper is to ?demystify? population-related statistics further and to promote a clearer understanding of what has been happening. The paper consolidates and interprets statistical evidence from various sources, and seeks to shed light on issues that appear to have been overlooked. It provides a basic context for, and general explanations of, the key population-related issues of fertility and mortality, overseas migration, geographical distribution and population projections.Availability: (1)
