Destination Zones (DZNs)

Destination Zones are the spatial unit used to code Place of Work (POWP). In 2011 the boundaries have been defined by each State/Territory Transport Authority as an aggregation of 2011 mesh blocks. The DZNs do not concord with Statistical Areas Level 1 (SA1s).

In previous Censuses DZNs have aggregated to Study areas. With the introduction of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS), Study areas have been replaced with Statistical Areas Level 2 (SA2s), which form the smallest unit for which the ABS publishes POWP statistics.

See also Place of Work (POWP).
