Division Benchmarking Tool
- This information refers to revised Estimated Resident Population (ERP) data, as at 30 June 2010. The ERP is the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) official estimate of the population based on normal place of residence. For more information about the ERP, see the ABS website at www.abs.gov.au. Divisional ERP were calculated using ABS data at Postal Area level and generated by the Public Health Information Development Unit (PHIDU) and available at www.publichealth.gov.au.
- Data from the 2006 Census (30 June 2006) were used to calculate the Australian Indigenous population. Due to small cell sizes for some Postal Areas (see method in Note 1), some data are missing to maintain confidentiality. This has resulted in a minor discrepancy (less than 0.01%) between the total reported here (n=447,602) and the total in ABS publications/PHIDU spreadsheets (n=455,016). Data were generated by PHIDU (www.publichealth.gov.au).
- Workforce data for the 2010-11 period is available on the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing website. Please note data reflect Division boundaries based on 2006 ABS Collection Districts as at 1st July 2010. FWE is reported in place of Fulltime Equivalence (FTE) as the former is considered to be a more accurate measure (and is preferred by Department of Health and Ageing). For a definition of FTE and FWE please see: www.phcris.org.au/fastfacts.
- For items where one or more Divisions has reported ‘Unknown’, the total figure shown is likely to be an underestimate of the true figure.
