45. The hierarchical structure of the Australian Standard Classification of Cultural and Ethnic Groups (ASCCEG) allows users the flexibility to output statistics at the level of the classification which best suits their requirements. Data can be presented at the broad group level, narrow group level, or the base (cultural and ethnic group) level. If necessary, significant ethnic or cultural groups within a narrow group can be presented separately while the remaining ethnic groups within the narrow group are aggregated. For example, the third level category 'Finnish' can be separately identified as an output category within the 'Northern European' Narrow Group, with the remaining third-level categories in this narrow group aggregated in an 'Other Northern European' category. The same principle can be adopted to highlight significant narrow groups within a broad group.
51. Ancestry does not require any supporting variables but needs to be considered together with other variables on cultural and ethnic origins for the purposes of most analysis. Such variables include Country of Birth of Person, Country of Birth of Mother, Country of Birth of Father, Indigenous Status, Religious Affiliation, Year of Arrival in Australia and language variables.
