ItemRecent changes to the Indigenous population geography of Australia: evidence from the 2016 CensusMarkham, Francis ; Biddle, Nicholas (2018-05-26)Journal ArticleBackground: The Indigenous population of Australia has grown very rapidly since the first tabulation of census statistics about Indigenous people in the 1971 ABS Census of Population and Housing (Census). Understanding the size and location of the Indigenous Australians is important to the State for service delivery and policy, and for Indigenous peoples themselves.
ItemElsewhere in Australia: a snapshot of temporary mobility on the night of the 2016 CensusCharles-Edwards, Elin ; Panczak, Radoslaw (2018-05-26)Journal ArticleBackground: Temporary population mobility, moves of more than one night's duration that do not entail a change in usual residence, are an important feature of the Australian population surface. The ABS Census of Population and Housing (Census) provides a snapshot of temporary movements one night every five years.
ItemEstimates of Australia's non-heterosexual populationWilson, Tom ; Shalley, Fiona (2018-05-26)Journal ArticleBackground: Demographers have studied minority populations for many years, but relatively little attention has been paid to sexual minority groups. Population estimates for sexual minorities would be useful as denominators for a range of health and socioeconomic indicators, to monitor representation in employment, assist budget planning and inform the marketing of goods and services.
ItemImproving population retention in northern Australia: clues from German-born TerritoriansMaertens, Anita ; Taylor, Andrew (2018-05-26)Journal ArticleBackground: Population growth rates in many parts of northern Australia have slowed considerably in recent years. Governments are interested in identifying northern migration 'markets' as potential targets for a mix of marketing and policy-based approaches to improve population attraction and retention. In the Northern Territory (NT), German-born residents present an interesting case study. Many are long-term residents ('sticky'), highly educated, in professional jobs and say they are likely to stay.
