This publication is the third 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 3 provides a list of Non-ABS Structures comprising regions which are not defined by the ABS, but which are important to users of statistics. These regions generally represent administrative areas and are approximated by the allocation of whole Mesh Blocks, Statistical Areas Level 1 or Statistical Areas Level 2. The digital boundaries and allocation tables for each of these regions are available for download within this product.
