    Abstract

    RESEARCH AIM
    To explore population projections for the Northern Territory

    This research brief discusses some of the national applications to which official population estimates are applied and outlines how these effect the Northern Territory. We describe the derivation of Estimated Resident Population (ERP) counts from Census data to highlight some of the uncertainties inherent in ERP counts and demonstrate the impacts using three historical examples from the Northern Territory.
