Concordance files are useful for people undertaking geospatial and data analysis. The concordance files below relate to different geographical areas:
- ASGS SA concordance files which are based on the Australian Statistical Geography Standards (ASGS) and Statistical Area Levels (SA). The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) website explains the distinction between SA1, SA2 and SA3.
- LGA concordance files which relate to the Local Government Areas (LGA).
- POA concordance files that relate to the Postal Areas (POA) which are an ABS approximation of postcodes. The ABS website explains the distinction between postcodes and POAs.
- CED concordance files which relate to Commonwealth Electoral Divisions (CED). CEDs are an ABS approximation of the official Commonwealth Electoral Divisions, developed by the Australian Electoral Commission. The ABS website explains the construction of CEDs.
