This publication is the second in a series of five yearly Volumes that details the various structures and regions of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). This 2016 standard provides a common framework of statistical geography used by the ABS and other organisations to enable the publication of statistics that are comparable and spatially integrated. The ASGS provides users with an integrated set of standard regions that they can use to access, visualise, analyse and understand statistics produced by the ABS and other organisations.

Volume 2 outlines the ASGS Indigenous Structure. This has been designed for the purpose of statistical analysis using spatial areas relevant to the distribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. The boundaries produced for the Indigenous Structure are constructed from Statistical Areas Level 1 (SA1s). Digital boundaries and allocation tables for these regions can be obtained as downloads within this product.
