The structures of the ABS represent different aspects of Australia’s geography. Each consists of a hierarchy of regions.

The ABS structures are those regions that are defined and maintained by the ABS.

The non ABS structures are those regions that are not defined and maintained by the ABS. They represent the administrative regions of government and semi-government organisations.
