2010 ASGC AREA BASED CORRESPONDENCES

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 2010 has a date of effect of 1 July 2010.

The product Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Correspondences (cat. no. 1216.0.15.002) contains four separate correspondence files (previously known as concordance files). These files are comma delimited and include metadata information that shows the file format.

Further information can be obtained from the Geography Section by emailing geography@abs.gov.au.
