This paper is the final paper on the design of the ASGS. The boundaries for the SA3, SA4 and Capital City levels of the ASGS will be finalised by the end of September 2010 in preparation for the publication of the ASGS by December 2010.

Some consultation has occurred with key stakeholders prior to the development of the draft boundaries, however input is now being sought from users.

The ABS will assess all submissions prior to finalising the boundaries.
