2016 CENSUS PRODUCTS RELEASE SCHEDULE BY GEOGRAPHY

Data from the 2016 Census will be released using the 2016 version of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). The ASGS classification structures are split into two broad groups, the ABS Structures and the Non ABS Structures. The ABS Structures are hierarchies of regions defined and maintained by the ABS. The Non ABS Structures are hierarchies of regions which are not defined or maintained by the ABS, but for which the ABS is committed to providing a range of statistics, such as Postcode and Local Government Areas.

In 2011, data was available for Statistical Local Areas (SLAs). This was a transitional arrangement as part of the introduction of the ASGS. 2016 Census data will not be available for SLAs. See the Census Geography chapter for more detail.

More information about the 2016 ASGS can be found in the publication Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS): Volume 1 - Main Structure and Greater Capital City Statistical Areas, July 2016 (cat. no. 1270.0.55.001).
