The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) conducts the Census of Population and Housing every five years, with results made available publically on the ABS website. One might then presume that questions such as “what is the population of Karratha?” can be easily answered at the click of a button. The reality is not that simple. For example, it is important to understand the meaning of “population” and “Karratha”, both of which could depend on many different factors.
