Working Population Profile R2.0A problem has been found with both the Census2006_geog_desc.xls and Census2006_geog_hier_update.csv files in the 'Metadata' folder. The problem arises as the Capital City and State/Territory Undefined dumpcodes have not been included and poses a problem for when the user is matching the geocodes and descripters to the WPP csv files from that of the files noted above. The issues are as follows:
1. There are no SD, SSD, JWSLA or LGA Capital City and State/Territory Undefined dumpcodes included in the Census2006_geog_hier_update.csv file.
2. The SD, SSD and LGA Capital City and State/Territory Undefined dumpcodes have also been omitted from the Census2006_geog_desc.xls file.
3. However, the JWSLA for Capital City and State/Territory Undefined dumpcodes are included in the Census2006_geog_desc.xls file.

Basic Community Profile R2.0CSV Data
For Collection District the WA tables 22 A and 22 B are populated with 0's. These tables should be populated with numerical data.

The SA and WA UCL files are WA and vise-versa. These have been renamed, ie: the file 'UCL_SA_B01.csv' to UCL_WA_B01.csv' and vise versa.

For SSC, tables B42 and 43 are missing approximately 40 SSC's.

For all geographies table B38 is to be updated. Data values that contribute to the table will change.
