The ABS will adopt the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) as outlined in the Information Paper The Review of the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (cat. no. 1216.0.55.001), with several modifications as a result of concerns raised by stakeholders illustrated in this Information Paper (cat. no. 1216.0.55.002)

The ASGS will be made available in late 2010 and will be implemented progressively for all ABS collections from the effective date of 1 July 2011.

The ABS encourages the adoption of the ASGS based on mesh blocks by other organisations to increase the comparability of statistical information across Australia and will be communicating the changes extensively prior to July 2011.
