dc.description'This report evaluates 12 data sources to establish whether they could act as useful proxy indicators of the de facto population in Darwin local government area and how it varies throughout the year. Each data source was evaluated against a set of criteria which the ideal data source would satisfy. Many of the data sources offer partial pictures of the de facto population in Darwin, but none are perfect. The best data source, at least conceptually, is the Telstra mobile device-based population numbers, but rubbish collection data and visitor estimates also offer some promise. Further work is required to investigate the most promising data sources in more detail. This involves determining if the Telstra data can be obtained, whether more detail is available from the rubbish collection and visitor data sets, and investigating geocoded social media data.' - Abstracten
