1. NET OVERSEAS MIGRATION - In 2007 the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) introduced improved methods for calculating net overseas migration (NOM) (refer to Chapter 3 and paragraphs 11–17 of the Explanatory Notes). A time series based on this improved methodology from December quarter 2003 onwards is available in Tables 3.10–3.12.

2. INTERSTATE MIGRATION - Interstate migration estimates in this publication are final for years up to and including 2005–06 and preliminary for 2006–07.

3. OVERSEAS-BORN POPULATION - Estimated resident population (ERP) by country of birth for 30 June 2007 is preliminary. Estimates for 2002 to 2006 are revised and based on the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. Estimates for periods earlier than this are final. See paragraph 3 of the Explanatory Notes for additional information.
