Customised geographic reports
The 2006 Census customised geographic data reports provide clients with tabular geographic data which relate specifically to the Census Geographic Areas. The data available in these reports are taken from the Collection District Record Database (CDRD).
Three types of common geographic data reports can be provided using the following standardised reports:
Clients who have data requirements that cannot be met by these three standard reports, or a combination thereof, can have their requests serviced though a special data query facility which is also available.
- direct queries - data from any number of nominated geographic areas can be drawn directly from the CDRD, (for example, the area in square kilometres for a number of SLAs).
- geographic conversions - a listing of all the geographic areas of a particular type (for example, an SLA) that are contained within, or share any common territory with, specified geographic areas of another type (for example, a State Electoral Division) can be taken from the CDRD.
- comparability listings - a set of Collection Districts (CDs) from a previous Census year can have the CDs from the 2006 Census which correspond to them identified and listed. Alternatively, a list of 2006 Census CDs can have the CDs from previous Censuses which correspond to them identified and listed. In each comparability listing there is a comparability indicator.
