SCOPE OF REVIEW
In 2016 the ABS conducted a minor review of the Standard Australian Classification of Countries (SACC). The review was conducted to ensure the classification was up-to-date, correct any errors in the classification, and to improve the index used to code responses. The conceptual model underpinning the classification was out of scope of this review.
OUTCOME OF REVIEW
The outcome of the 2016 review was that four substantive changes were made to SACC country titles. Consequent changes were made to ensure that revised country titles were applied in a consistent manner throughout the classification (e.g. in correspondence tables, list of differences with the equivalent New Zealand classification, short names for publications, etc.) and the coding index.
The 2016 minor review of the SACC resulted in the following substantive changes to the classification:
|Code||SACC 2011, Version 2.3||SACC 2016|
|3206||Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)||North Macedonia|
|5101||Myanmar, The Republic of the Union of||Myanmar|
|8202||Bolivia, Plurinational State of||Bolivia|
|8216||Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of||Venezuela|
