The Government does collect the actual number of rateable dwellings for each of these financial years. However, these data are not directly comparable to the numbers above as the data sources and methods differ.
(2) The Government does not model or project the number of households in the ACT. The ABS publishes projections of the number of households in Household and Family Projections, Australia, 2011 to 2036 (ABS Cat. No. 3236.0). These projections are based on the 2011 Census and should be used with caution.
(3) Population Projections published in January 2014 were produced internally, whereas the March 2017 published projections were produced externally.
a. The Australian Bureau of Statistics modelled population numbers based on ACT Treasury parameters under two contracts.
b. The value of the contracts were (i) $5,310 and (ii) $10,790 totalling $16,100.

Land—block 6, Dickson (Question No 1301)
Mr Coe asked the Chief Minister, upon notice, on 13 April 2018 (redirected to the Minister for Urban Renewal):
What is the (a) date and (b) total value of each payment made by the Canberra Tradesmen's Union Club under the sublease agreement for Block 6 Section 72 Dickson since the commencement of the contract to date in relation to (i) land tax, (ii) general rates, (iii) water and sewerage rates, (iv) electricity, (v) gas and (vi) water usage.
Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member's question is as follows:
The ACT Revenue Office is unable to provide information on general rates and land tax paid by a particular taxpayer as it would breach the secrecy provisions of the Taxation Administration Act 1999. This is standard practice for all tax payers.
