WHAT'S CHANGED

PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW


The ABS conducted the review to:
    • ensure the classification was up-to-date
    • correct any errors in the classification
    • improve the index used to code responses.

This was a minor review.

There was no analysis of the conceptual model underpinning the classification.

There was no evidence to suggest that a more comprehensive review was necessary.


CHANGES TO THE CLASSIFICATION


The Netherlands Antilles was dissolved in 2010 resulting in the new countries of 'Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba', 'Curacao' and 'Sint Maarten (Dutch part)'.

South Sudan became an independent country in July 2011.
