CHAPTER 6 COVERAGE AND CLASSIFICATION
6.5 Examples of dwelling types not in scope are:
6.6 HPI processing identifies the out of scope dwelling types of flats, units and apartments in the sets of price data provided to the ABS and these sales records are removed from the calculation of price change for all cities. It should be noted, however, that for Sydney, Brisbane, Hobart and Darwin it is currently not practical to identify and remove some other out of scope dwelling types (e.g. townhouses and terraces). Work is currently underway to address this issue.
6.7 Houses within capital city statistical divisions (SD), as defined in the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) (cat. no. 1216.0) are included.
6.8 Coverage is limited to those suburbs which existed within SD boundaries at the time of the Census used to determine the weights of the HPI.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
