42 Population 2013-14 Budget population change. Chart4.1 depicts the contribution of each component of growth to the total growth for the Territory from 2000to2012. Source: ABS Cat. No. 3101.0 The difference between the number of births and deaths is called natural increase. It is a critical component of population change simply because it determines, in the absence of any migration, whether a population will grow or decline. In the Territory, there are consistently more births than deaths making natural increase by far the largest and most stable contributor to population growth. In 201112, natural increase added 2993 people to the Territorys population. 200607 200708 200809 200910 201011 201112 Northern Territory1 215 021 220 935 226 841 230 315 231 331 234 836 Natural increase 2 808 2 856 2 883 2 884 2 820 2 993 Births 3 772 3 901 3 898 3 821 3 839 4 007 Deaths 964 1 045 1 015 937 1 019 1 014 (000) (000) (000) (000) (000) (000) Australia1 21 015.9 21 384.4 21 778.8 22 065.3 22 323.9 22 683.6 Natural increase 141.7 148.8 153.3 149.7 150.5 151.3 Births 277.7 289.5 297.1 291.2 296.8 297.8 Deaths 136.0 140.7 143.7 141.5 146.3 146.5 1 Total population Source: ABS Cat. No. 3101.0 In 201112, there were 4007births registered in the Territory. This was the highest annual number of births over the past fiveyears and compares to 3839 births recorded in 201011, a 4.4percent increase, which was the largest of all jurisdictions. The total fertility rate (TFR) represents the number of children a woman would give birth to during her lifetime if she experienced current agespecific fertility rates at each age of her reproductive life (ages 15to49). TFR is affected by the proportion of childbearingaged women in the population as well as the size of the Indigenous population (for whom TFR is higher) and as such will vary across jurisdictions. The Territory had the highest TFR over the 200611 intercensal period, higher than all other jurisdictions and substantially higher than the Australian TFR of Chart 4.1: Territory Population Growth by Component -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 Natural increase Total Net interstate migration Net overseas migration Year ended June Number (000) Natural Increase Table 4.2: Natural Increase, Territory and Australia, 2007-12 Births
