SUMMARY OF CHANGES
There have been no changes to the broad, narrow or religious groups of the classification.
There have been changes to the coding index, including:
These changes are detailed below.
Published coding index changes
The following entities have been added to the index due to growth. There was growth in these entities according to external research and 2006 Census data.
The following entities have been deleted from the published coding index. They were deleted based on stakeholder consultation and low counts in the 2006 Census.
Religious groups renamed
Two groups have been renamed throughout the classification.
The misspelling of the Urantia Book Study Group (coded to 6999 under Religious Groups nec) has been corrected.
COMPARING CURRENT AND PREVIOUS EDITIONS OF THE ASCRG
Correspondence tables are available if users need to convert data from the second edition/second edition Revision 1 to the old first edition ASCRG.
Revision 1 of the Second edition did not result in any changes to the classification structure. So a correspondence is not required between the Second edition and the Second edition Revision 1. Consequently the Second edition and Second edition Revision 1 correspondences to the First edition are identical. Correspondences to the First edition are provided in the ASCRG data cube.
The correspondence table is reasonably straightforward because, in most cases, the base-level units of the editions of the classification (religious groups) retain a one-to-one relationship. The correspondence table itemises the code linkages between the religions, details the links between the broad groups and the narrow groups, and indicates the movement of particular religions between religion groups in the two structures.
In some instances, there is not a direct relationship between the religions or religion groupings of the structures of the two editions. Partial linkages at both the religion and religion group level are indicated by including the word 'part' after the name of the religion or religion group concerned.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
