Errata

Erratum – 31 March 2011

2006 Census: QuickStats About Housing – an error was found in table 2, entitled, 'Occupied Dwelling Type, 1996–2006 Censuses', with a small number of records coded to the wrong categories for 2001. The affected categories are: 'Institution' and 'Occupied Non-private Dwelling Not Further Defined'. The subcategories within 'Occupied Private Dwelling' and 'Occupied Non-private Dwelling' have also been reordered.
