Using GIS to Estimate Non-standard Area Population
Track: Human Services
Authors: GIS WA_Health
Information about the size and distribution of human population is essential for major decisions in areas such as health. The Australian Bureau of Statistics has been conducting census surveys every five years, but ABS only releases the data on its standard geography. However users often digress from the standard geography towards areal levels. The main purpose of this study is to develop methodology to estimate non-standard area population and to assess the estimation errors.
