1. At the time of revision of the Functional Classification of Buildings (FCB), the endorsed standard for dwelling statistics was the Dwelling Structure Classification (DSC) which is used by collections such as the Census of Population and Housing and the Australian Housing Survey. The DSC covers only residential building and classifies private dwellings according to structure. The Residential division of the 1999 FCB is broadly consistent with DSC apart from the class of Separate houses where the FCB provides greater detail than DSC, and the DSC "Other dwelling" class which includes non-permanent and mobile dwellings such as caravans, tents and houseboats which are exluded from the 1999 FCB.
