Australian Standard Classification of Cultural and Ethnic Groups (ASCCEG)
The Australian Standard Classification of Cultural and Ethnic Groups (ASCCEG) is the Australian statistical standard for classifying data relating to the ethnic and cultural composition of the Australian population. ASCCEG is a classification of cultural and ethnic groups based on the geographic area in which a group originated or developed and the similarity of cultural and ethnic groups in terms of social and cultural characteristics.
The ASCCEG was first published in 2000 and was revised in 2005 and 2011. The ASCCEG Second Edition, Revision 1 is used in the 2011 Census to classify the variables Ancestry 1st Response (ANC1P) and Ancestry 2nd Response (ANC2P). For more information refer to the Australian Standard Classification of Cultural and Ethnic Groups (ASCCEG), Second Edition, Revision 1 (cat. no. 1249.0).
