Contents >> Section One: 1996 Census Classifications >> SLA of Usual Residence Census Night - SLAUCP

1st Release

This variable identifies the Statistical Local Area (SLA) of usual residence on census night. For details of these areas see the Statistical Geography Volume 1: Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) (1216.0). In cases where a person does not state his/her place of usual residence, SLAUCP is imputed (generally to SLA of enumeration). SLAs can be aggregated to form higher ASGC areas: Local Government Area (LGA), Statistical Subdivision (SSD), Statistical Division (SD), Statistical District (SDIST), Statistical Region (SR), Major Statistical Region (MSR) and State/Territory (STE).

Refer also to Usual Residence Indicator 1996, 1995 and 1991 (UAICP, UAI1P and UAI5P) for answers to the usual residence questions.

        9899 - Undefined State
        VVVV - Overseas visitor
      Total number of categories: 1364

To uniquely define the above categories by State/Territory, users must combine SLAUCP with State of Usual Residence (STEUCP). When combined, the categories Undefined Sydney, Undefined Melbourne,..., Undefined Canberra etc. are obtained.
