ANCP Ancestry - 1st Release

This variable is coded using the Australian Standard Classification of Cultural and Ethnic Groups (ASCCEG) released October 2000.

Census respondents may select one or more Ancestry categories. As a result, the sum of the categories may be greater than the number of people who answered this question. Where a respondent marks more than one category, only the first two are coded. In addition, care should be taken when summing categories. The sum of the categories may be greater than the total for the corresponding minor (two digit) group, and the sum the minor groups may be greater than the total for the major (one digit) group.

Ancestry data can also be output by dual response, e.g. the number of persons who have both Australian and Vietnamese ancestry.
