The ABS proposes to introduce a new micro-level geography into the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) in 2006. Mesh Blocks are intended to become a new building block of statistical and administrative geography. Experimental outputs from the 2006 Census will be available for Mesh Blocks. This Position Paper summarises the findings of an Expert Panel which is advising the ABS on the ideal design criteria for Mesh Blocks, and seeks feedback on the Mesh Block concept.
