PRESENTING THE DATA
Output categories for detailed data
The hierarchical structure of the Australian Standard Classification of Languages (ASCL), 2016 (ABS catalogue number 1267.0) allows users the flexibility to produce statistics at the level of the classification which best suits information needs.
Requirements for data quality or respondent confidentiality may preclude output of data at the more detailed level of the classification. Under these circumstances, data can be aggregated and disseminated at the higher levels of ASCL.
Output categories for minimum data
The standard output categories, for the minimum question module, are:
- English, and
- Other language.
