The 2006 Census Dictionary contains information about the 2006 Census classifications, which are the standard output variables for which data is produced. The Dictionary also describes the new topics introduced in the 2006 Census and summarises classification changes that have occurred since the 2001 Census.
Alongside the classifications is a comprehensive Glossary, which contains definitions of census terms, explanations of the concepts relevant to census collection, data processing and data output, including geographic concepts. Entries in this section of the Dictionary are cross-referenced to major related entries, many of which refer directly to questions on the 2006 Census form.
