ABS STRUCTURES

The ABS Structures comprise six interrelated hierarchies of regions. They are:

  • Main Structure
  • Indigenous Structure
  • Urban Centres and Localities/Section of State Structure
  • Remoteness Structure
  • Greater Capital City Statistical Area (GCCSA) Structure
  • Significant Urban Area Structure.

The Main Structure and GCCSA Structure will be discussed in more detail in this publication. The remaining ABS Structures will be described in later volumes of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). For details of their release, see Related material and release timetable.
