DATA QUALITY
Due to the small size of Mesh Blocks, data is confidentialised and is only released for basic dwelling counts and number of persons usually resident.
Each state contains a single MB_CODE_2016 for No Usual Address. These have the following coding structure:
<State Code>0000009499
For example, the NSW MB_CODE_2016 for No Usual Address is 10000009499.
