The average bedrooms per person derived from the count of occupied private dwellings and place of enumeration population counts from the Australian Census at 2011 Local Government Areas. Bedrooms per person data for the 2006 and 2001 Censuses has been re-calculated at the 2011 Local Government Area boundaries.
The ABS has identified an error in the derivation of this variable for the 2006 and 2011 Censuses. Some dwellings with a person-to-bedroom ratio of less than one (i.e. more bedrooms in the dwelling than persons) have been incorrectly allocated to the '1 person per bedroom' category, resulting in an average figure that is higher than it should be. This error affects all geography levels for both Censuses.
This error affects the Basic Community profile, Place of Enumeration profile, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples (Indigenous) profile and Time Series profile, as well as the DataPacks for these profiles, for both 2006 and 2011 Censuses. It also affects the QuickStats for both 2006 and 2011 Censuses.
