Dwelling and household estimates: December 2019 quarter

9 January 2020

Dwelling and household estimates are used for many purposes including planning, policy formation, business decisions, and as ‘bottom lines’ in the calculation of market coverage rates.

Key facts

  • Private dwellings estimate: 1,911,400 (at 31 December 2019).
  • Households estimate: 1,781,100 (at 31 December 2019).

The private dwelling estimates are based on the 2018 Census of Population and Dwellings while household estimates remain on a 2013-base. These household estimates will be rebased and revised after the 2018-base estimated resident population is published.
