DESCRIPTION

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 2006 has a date of effect of 1 July 2006.

The product 1216.0.15.001 ASGC 2006 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. The Urban Centres/Localities by State/Territory ASGC 2006 file will not be available until September 2007.
