The three volumes of Statistical Geography provide information about the names and codes of the geographic areas used in the 1996 Census.
Statistical Geography: Volume 1 - Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC), 1996 Census Edition
Volume 1 provides information about the ASGC and changes to geographic areas between each census.
It contains an explanation of the hierarchical relationship between the geographic areas covered by the ASGC.
The following geographic areas are covered in this publication:
Statistical Geography: Volume 2 - Census Geographic Areas, Australia
Volume 2 provides information on standard census output areas not covered by the ASGC.
Many of the areas described in this volume are derived by aggregating the Collection Districts (CDs) that best fit the original area. These CD-derived areas do not necessarily match exactly with the original area. An example of this is CD-derived Commonwealth Electoral Divisions. These areas are constructed using the CDs that best match the electorates defined by the Australian Electoral Commission.
The areas covered by this volume are:
Volume 3 provides information on the Urban Centres and Localities (UC/Ls) that are defined in accordance with the ASGC, using the person counts collected in the census.
