2006 ASGC REMOTENESS AREA CORRESPONDENCES

The Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) is a hierarchical classification system of geographical areas and consists of a number of interrelated structures. The Remoteness Structure with the Remoteness Areas (RA) is one of these. The 2006 Remoteness Structures has a date of effect of 1 July 2006.

The product Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Remoteness Area Correspondences, 2006 (cat no. 1216.0.15.003), contains eleven separate correspondence files (previously known as concordance files). These files are comma delimited text files that enable users to convert data from one type of 2006 geographic area to the 2006 RAs. This product contains the most requested 2006 RA population based correspondences for 2006.

The product Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Remoteness Area Correspondences, 2006 (cat no. 1216.0.15.003) also contains Adobe PDF maps for each State and Territory of Australia. The maps illustrate the RA classifications (except for Migratory) within each State and Territory.
