The Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) is a hierarchical classification system of geographical areas and consists of a number of interrelated structures. It provides a common framework of statistical geography and enables the production of statistics which are comparable.

The ASGC 2004 has a date of effect of 1 July 2004.

The product 1216.0.15.001 ASGC 2004 Electronic Structures contains four comma delimited files showing the levels and hierarchy of those ASGC structures current for the edition: the Local Government Area Structure, the Main Structure, the Statistical District Structure and the Statistical Region Structure. It also has a metadata sheet showing the file format. The smallest level of geography for this edition is the Statistical Local Area (SLA).
