Description Details Source Examples

Description

This is a list of data frames each containing indigenous estimated resident population (ERP) data, by state, sex and single-year of age, from 0 to 115.

Details

The first data frame contains cohort-interpolated Indigeneous ERP, estimated from the 2001, 2006 and 2011 Census-based Indigenous ERPs. Interpolation is linear between years for each cohort.

The second data frame contains age-interpolated Indigeneous ERP, estimated from the 2001, 2006 and 2011 Census-based Indigenous ERPs. Interpolation is linear between years for each age.

The third data frame contains backcasts of 2011 census-based Indigenous ERPs. For each state, the total populations are split into males and females using the sex ratios for each age computed from averaged census populations for 2001, 2006 and 2011.

Each data frame contains columns State, Sex, Age, 2001, ... 2011.
