Ancestry 1st Response/Ancestry 2nd Response/Ancestry Multi Response
First release

Icon - PersonsAncestry is coded using the Australian Standard Classification of Cultural and Ethnic Groups (ASCCEG) Second Edition, Revision 1.

To analyse ancestry, both ancestry variables (ANC1P and ANC2P) must be used. There are two ancestry variables because respondents to the Census are asked to report up to two ancestries on their Census form. Respondents do not have the option of ranking their answers to the ancestry question, so where a respondent reports two ancestries, those two ancestries have equal standing. The basis for allocating ancestries to the variables ANC1P and ANC2P is administrative only and is based on the order in which they are processed. The two ancestry variables (ANC1P and ANC2P) have been combined into one variable ANCP Ancestry Multi Response.
