the same period. The Territorys annual population growth rate for 1996 was again the highest of any jurisdiction. It should be noted that all population estimates contained in this chapter are based on the 1991 Census of Population and Housing, when the 1996 Census results become available, ABS will revise these estimates based on the results of the 1996 Census. It is expected that the Territorys population will be adjusted upward as occurred after the 1991 Census results were released in early 1993. An upward revision in Territory population growth (particularly in 1992, 1993 and 1994) would be consistent with the very strong economic growth in the Territory in the past five years. Components of Growth Population growth comprises three independent components, natural increase (births over deaths), net overseas migration (difference between overseas immigration and emigration) and net interstate migration (difference between interstate arrivals and departures). In 1996, natural increase continued to be the major contributor to the overall population increase in the Territory, while net overseas and interstate migration both made significant contributions. 0 1 2 3 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 Population Growth Rates Northern Territory Australia Source: ABS Cat.
