2011 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 2011 ASGC is the final edition of the ASGC and has a date of effect of 1 July 2011. From 2011 onwards the ABS will be using a new statistical geography called the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

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 text files. Metadata information that shows the file formats are included below.
