SECTION OF STATE (SOS) AND SECTION OF STATE RANGE (SOSR)

PURPOSE OF SOS AND SOSR

The Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) Section of State (SOS) and Section of State Range (SOSR) Structures define broad classes of urban and rural areas. This is done by grouping the Urban Centres and Localities (UCLs) into broad classes based on population sizes of Urban Centres and Localities within each State. SOSR provides a more detailed classification than SOS. This enables statistical comparisons of differently sized urban centres and the balancing 'rural areas'.
