Statistical Divisions and statistical subdivisions

A Statistical Division (SD) is an Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) defined area which represents a large, general purpose, regional type geographic area. The Statistical Subdivision (SSD) is an Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) defined area which represents an intermediate level, general purpose, regional type geographic unit.

Census data from the 1% CURF, however, combines some statistical divisions and statistical subdivisions to maintain confidentiality.
