First Mesh Block data released

On 29 February 2008, the ABS released the total number of dwellings and total population counts for the 2006 Census at Mesh Block level. Mesh Blocks are a new geographical unit which are being developed by the ABS to improve geographical and statistical comparisons and increase data accuracy. Mesh Block data is 'experimental' for the 2006 Census.

Most Mesh Blocks contain 30-60 dwellings compared with an average of 220 dwellings per Census Collection District (CDs).
