Please note the correspondence 'CP2006RA_2006CD.txt' has two fields containing 'CDCODE_2006'. CDs do not have a name, however the program requires both columns populated, and therefore the 'CDCODE_2006' has been duplicated.

The Remoteness Area from Census Collection District (RA from CD) correspondence for 2006 allows the conversion of population data from CD to RA. For information on both these geographic areas please refer to Statistical Geography Volume 1 - Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC), July 2006 (cat no. 1216.0).
