|Note: Estimates for 2012 are revised. The ABS revised 2012 sub-state estimates to maintain (for most areas) the 2011-12 growth rates released in the 2011-12 issue of 3218.0, published 30 April 2013, following revision to the 2011 population estimates. Due to a major change in the methodology used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to estimate census undercount, the ABS has released a revised ERP series from 1991 to 2011 for LGA geographies. These estimates are constrained to the revised Queensland level ERP series.|
