2009 ASGC AREA BASED CORRESPONDENCES

The Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) is a hierarchical classification system of geographical areas and consists of a number of interrelated structures. It provides a common framework of statistical geography and enables the production of statistics which are comparable.

The ASGC 2009 has a date of effect of 1 July 2009.

The product Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Correspondences (cat. no. 1216.0.15.002) contains four separate correspondence files (previously known as concordance files). These are comma delimited text files. Metadata information that shows the file formats are included below.

Further information can be obtained from the Geography Section by emailing geography@abs.gov.au.
