Estimating temporary populations (2016–2019)

Drawing on new and emerging sources of data, this project will develop a novel series of population estimates for Australian regions and localities that encompasses visitors and other temporary movements, and will complement existing estimates of resident populations. It will clarify user needs, evaluate data quality, apply metrics to capture key forms of temporary mobility, and integrate symptomatic data to estimate the timing and magnitude of population flux at local and regional levels. These results will advance the science of population estimation and have direct practical relevance to planning, while positioning Australia at the forefront in addressing a growing global information need.
