This paper outlines the different data sources used to produce annual subnational population estimates following the 2010/11 Canterbury earthquakes. The target population and coverage of these data sources is invariably different to that of the 'resident' population being estimated. However, collectively, the different sources provide confidence about the general robustness of population estimates, and some offer potential for ongoing use.
