Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
Details on which edition was used in a particular data set should be included in the documentation of metadata accompanying that data set. Coding to ASGC codes is preferably done using the ABS National Localities Index, to map actual address. In some data collections, a compromise has to be made and the ASGC code derived from suburb/town/locality and Postcode-Australian only. However, this solution results in some inaccuracy of information.
The accurate recording of the state or territory is essential.
Code 00000, Not applicable, is used for national reporting purposes in instances where the person is not resident in Australia, that is, the person lives in another country, or at sea, or has no fixed address.
