Historical Digital Boundaries

Census digital boundaries facilitate the use of of census data in Geographic Information Systems (GIS). The ABS encourages and supports the use of common boundaries by other organisations to improve the comparability and usefulness of statistics generally.

Historical Census Digital Boundaries (cat. no. 2925.0.30.001) is the latest in a series of census digital boundaries available on CD-ROM. It provides boundaries for Collection Districts (CDs) and CD-derived geographical areas for 1981, 1986, 1991 and 1996 in MapInfo interchange (mid/mif) format. As boundaries can change significantly over time, these historical digital boundaries are a valuable tool in any in-depth time series analysis of census data.

Any enquiries about Digital Boundaries should be forwarded to the Assistant Director, Census Geography, telephone 02 6252 7214, fax 02 6252 8666 or email
