COMMONWEALTH ELECTORAL DIVISIONS (CED)
The 2018 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) edition of the Commonwealth Electoral Divisions (CED) structure includes updates to the definition of electoral divisions that have occurred prior to 31 July 2018. This updates the 2017 edition of Commonwealth Electoral Divisions released in the ASGS Volume 3 - Non ABS Structures, July 2017. It includes gazetted changes to electoral divisions in Victoria, Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.
No usual address and Migratory - Offshore - Shipping are represented as non-spatial objects in the Commonwealth Electoral Division digital boundaries.
COMMONWEALTH ELECTORAL DIVISION NAMES
Commonwealth Electoral Division names are the same as those allocated by the Australian Electoral Commission.
COMMONWEALTH ELECTORAL DIVISION CODING STRUCTURE
Commonwealth Electoral Divisions are sorted by name then allocated a two digit code starting from 01 within each State or Territory. This is prefixed by a single digit State or Territory code to enable unique identification of Commonwealth Electoral Divisions across the country.
The codes used for the 2018 ASGS Commonwealth Electoral Divisions may not match those used in 2017 as codes are assigned alphabetically within each State and Territory, and some Commonwealth Electoral Division names may have changed since 2017. A geographic correspondence file enabling the translation of data from 2017 to 2018 CEDs is available in the downloads tab of this publication.
Special purpose codes are included as balancing items. SA1s allocated to these codes are not part of a Commonwealth Electoral Division.
