Footnotes

(a) Other Territories (OT) includes the territories of Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Christmas Island and Jervis Bay.
(b) For each state and the NT, and Other Territories, a code for Off-Shore, Shipping and Migratory CDs has been included.
(c) Includes the LGA 9399 unincorporated state/territory for each state/territory.
(d) Statistical Districts can cross state/territory borders. For the purposes of this fact sheet, Statistical Districts that cross state/territory borders are counted in each state/territory (NSW 3, Vic 1, Qld 1, ACT 1), but are counted only once in the Australia total.
(e) These Geographic Areas are derived on a 'best fit' basis of CDs to externally determined boundaries. They are often referred to as CD Derived Areas.
(f) The ACT Electoral Division of Fraser includes Jervis Bay and is counted in ACT and OT. The NT Electoral Division of Lingiari includes Christmas Island and Cocos (Keeling) Islands and is counted in NT and OT. Each is counted only once in the Australia total.
(g) State Suburb counts include an 'unclassified' suburb that occurs in each state/territory where suburb boundaries do not cover the whole state. It also includes Off-shore, Shipping and Migratory CDs.
(h) Includes the ABS assigned 'dump' postal area for each state (x999), 2699 for the ACT, and 0899 for the NT. Postal Area boundaries may cross state/territory borders, and can be counted more than once in individual state/territory figures but only once in the Australia total.
(i) The Indigenous Region, 01 'Queanbeyan', crosses state/territory borders and as such is counted in NSW and OT. It is counted once only in the Australia total.
(j) For each state, the NT and OT, a code for Off-Shore, Shipping and Migratory CDs has been included.
(k) Jervis Bay Territory is incorporated into a NSW Indigenous Area and Indigenous Location. This Indigenous Area and Indigenous Location are counted in OT as well as in NSW. They are counted only once in the Australia total.
(l) For 2006 there are two versions of Commonwealth Electoral Divisions (CEDs). CED2004 is the classification that was current for Census Night (August 2006). CED2007 are the boundaries that will supersede the CED2004 boundaries after the 2007 federal election (August 2007 - January 2008).
(m) Australian residents temporarily in Antarctica or on Macquarie Island have been included in a second Off-Shore CD for Tasmania.
