Output categories for detailed data

Spanish North Africa
The hierarchical structure of the SACC (cat. no. 1269.0) allows users the flexibility to output statistics at the level of the classification which best suits their requirements. Data can be presented at major group, minor group, or the base or country level. If necessary, significant countries within a minor group can be presented separately while the remaining countries within the minor group are aggregated. For example (see above), the third level categories 'Morocco'' or 'Tunisia' can be separately identified as output categories within the 'North Africa' Minor Group, with the remaining third level categories in this minor group aggregated into an 'Other' North Africa category. The same principle can be adopted to highlight significant minor groups within a major group.
For a more detailed and complex analysis it is recommended that data be captured, classified and stored at the base level of the classification wherever possible. It allows the greatest flexibility, enables more detailed analysis, facilitates comparisons with previous data using different classifications, and preserves information that provides maximum flexibility for future use of the data.
The standard output categories for the Country of Birth question modules, for minimum data are:
