Contents >> Appendix 8 - Classification of language spoken at home

Language spoken at home is classified to the full 4 digit level of the Australian Standard Classification of Languages (ASCL) (cat. no. 1267.0). While survey results can technically be compiled at this level, the survey sample is not sufficient to support reliable output at that level. For most output purposes, language classified to broader level classifications would be more suitable. ASCL categories at the broader levels are shown below.
