Correction of Prison Data for Queensland

For the 2001 Census of Population and Housing, most prison data was received for processing via electronic data files. During the post-processing evaluation cycle, it has been established that the male and female counts for Queensland prisons (only) were incorrectly captured. This has resulted in the publication of incorrect sex counts for Males and Females for various Queensland geographical areas and as a consequence, the Australian (AUS) population totals.

The errors will be corrected on the SuperCROSS Database immediately and will be delivered to Census SuperCROSS Managers in August 2003. The following actions will also be undertaken for clients who currently have the incorrect data:

  • Corrigenda for the census hardcopy publications will be issued outlining the error.
  • The effects on Estimated Resident Population (ERP) will be evaluated by the Demography Section and a statement concerning the effects will be distributed to clients at a later date.
  • "Census Basics" clients will be contacted.
  • Internet staff will correct the tables currently on the ABS Website, plus add a document to contact clients using the incorrect data.
  • Community Profile tables will be corrected and loaded to the Profiles and Classification Series (PCS) database.
  • CDATA staff will correct the data and clients will be contacted.

The table below shows the total population data for each geography level by sex, displaying the mis-coded data and the corrected data:
