Postcode to Statistical Local Area concordances

The ABS has developed several concordance products which enable users to convert data for one type of geographic region to another. The Postal Area to Statistical Local Area (SLA) 1996 concordance shows the conversion of population data from Postal Areas to SLA based on 1996 Population Census data (Cat. nos. 1253.0.15.001-1253.8.15.001).

Postcode to SLA concordances are updated annually. These concordances are derived by updating the 1996 Census-based concordances using more recent information, and assist the ABS in estimating the populations of SLAs. For further information on updated postcode to SLA concordances, contact the ABS Small Area Population Unit on (08) 8237 7370.
