AUSTRALIAN STATISTICAL GEOGRAPHY STANDARD (ASGS) CORRESPONDENCES


The ABS is making an extensive range of correspondences available to assist with the implementation of the new statistical geography.

Correspondences mathematically reassign data from one geographic region to another. Under the ASGS a new method for building correspondences has been developed. This new method creates more accurate correspondences than previously. As most ABS data relates to population, standard correspondences will use a weighting calculated using Mesh Block population data from the 2011 Census. Correspondences based on area or other variables will be available on request.

For more information on the use of correspondences please refer to:

Information Paper: Converting Data to the Australian Statistical Geography Standard, 2012 (cat. no. 1216.0.55.004).

Several correspondences are available through the online publication:

Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) Correspondences, July 2011 (cat. no. 1270.0.55.006).

The publication will be updated with new issues as more correspondences become available.

The ABS will not release correspondences it considers unfit for any reasonable purpose. The ABS will not release correspondences for non-ASGS regions, unless there is an ABS business case for their supply.

The table below represents a minimum that the ABS is committed to release. Other correspondences, including area weighted correspondences, will be generated on request.

How to access correspondences

Standard correspondences, coding indexes and allocation tables are available free either from the ABS website or, by emailing: geography@abs.gov.au

Explanations on the differences between correspondences, coding indexes and allocation tables, are provided on the website: Converting Data to the ASGS

AUSTRALIAN STANDARD GEOGRAPHICAL CLASSIFICATION (ASGC) CORRESPONDENCES


The ASGC correspondences used two methods of calculation to produce two types of correspondence files:
  • population based correspondences, based on population of whole Census Collection Districts
  • area based correspondences, based on overlapping area.

The population weighted calculations express the percentage of the “From” area’s population contained within the “To” area. The area based calculation expresses the percentage of the “From” area contained within the “To” area.
