Guide for Use
Service providers may operate preschool programs at a number of geographical localities, with the management and operational responsibilities for those preschools being run out of the same administration office. In this situation, each preschool program is required to have an individual suburb/town/locality name recorded, to allow identification of the geographical location where the preschool program is being delivered.
The suburb/town/locality name may be a town, city, suburb or commonly used location name such as a large agricultural property or Aboriginal community.
Mobile preschools should record the suburb/town/locality of the non-mobile preschool from which it operates.
CODE ns - Not stated/inadequately described
For use when the suburb/town/locality name of the service provider is unknown, not stated or inadequately described. Where the suburb/town/locality name is unknown, the ABS requests that jurisdictions identify the reason for the unknown response and document any follow-up processes undertaken.
Related aggregate data elements: Suburb/town/locality name.
