Census 2001 Geography
New Sections of State
Following the recent review of the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC), it was decided that urban centres from the 2001 Census would be classified according to population size. To achieve this, it is proposed to implement new Sections of State, expanding the present 'Other Urban' category into several classes. It is proposed to implement a two-digit Section of State code from 2001 to facilitate this.
Depending on user requirements, the current 'Major Urban' category (100,000 or more population) may be split as follows:
These changes will allow users of Census data to easily identify collection districts forming part of urban centres within the particular population classes. Thus the characteristics of the population of a range of urban and rural environments can be explored and compared.
If you have any comments on the above proposals, or require more information, please contact Venetia Shaw, Assistant Director, Geography Section on (02) 6252 5888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
