(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 the one 'unclassified' suburb that occurs in each State/Territory as suburbs are only allocated for major population centres. It also includes Off-shore, Shipping and Migratory CDs. State Suburb boundaries are not allocated for Qld and ACT. However, SLA boundaries for major urban areas in Qld and the ACT approximate to suburbs.
(h)Includes the ABS assigned 'dump' postcode (x999) for each State/Territory. Postal Area boundaries may cross State/Territory borders, and are counted only once in the State/Territory of origin.
(i)The ATSIC Region, 01 'Queanbeyan', crosses State/Territory borders and as such is counted in NSW, ACT and OT. It is counted once only in the Australia total.
(j)Includes a single code for Off-Shore, Shipping and Migratory CDs for each State and the NT. It is counted once only in the Australia total.
(k)Parts of Jervis Bay Territory are incorporated in a NSW Indigenous Area and Indigenous Location. These Indigenous Areas and Indigenous Locations are counted in OT as well as in NSW. They are counted only once in the Australia total.
(l)These CDs are included in the counts for 'Collection District' and 'No. CDs in Capital City SD' in the Australian Standard Geographical Classification part of the table.
