The S Dist. Structure has four levels of hierarchy in census years, comprising in ascending order: CDs-SLAs-SSDs-S Dists. In non-census years, with CDs undefined, it has only three levels of hierarchy (see ASGC Structural Chart).
(showing three hierarchical levels: S Dist.-SSD-SLA)
THE SPATIAL UNITS
Census Collection District (CD)
Statistical Local Area (SLA)
Statistical Subdivision (SSD)
For discussion about these spatial units see Main Structure.
S Dist. name
S Dist. names include a suffix which identifies the state(s)/territory in which the S Dist. is located.
S Dist. code
S Dists are identified by four-digit codes which are unique within Australia. The first two digits indicate the S/T(s) in which the S Dist. is located. For the three S Dists which cover two states, the first digit is the code of the predominant state and the second digit is the code of the other state. For the other S Dists which fall entirely within one S/T, the first digit is the S/T code and the second digit is 0. The last two digits are allocated in ascending numerical order. Gaps are left between codes for future expansion.
