* The enrolment rate is calculated by the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) based on Estimated Eligible Population using ABS citizen population figures for 30 June 2019 (revised) and 30 June 2020 (preliminary) based on the 2016 Census. ABS data is adjusted by the AEC and projected forward to the relevant date, then adjusted for British Subjects, those of unsound mind, overseas electors and new citizens since the Census.

# Enrolment rates above 99.0% are not reported due to error associated with calculating Estimated Eligible Population which may overstate the actual enrolment rate.
