The primary source for understanding population changes at all levels in Australia is the Census of Population and Housing. For the 2011 Census a new statistical geography standard was in place, the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). In this research brief, we explore whether the new geographical standard reflects ‘the local’, particularly in relation to ‘dynamic’ Census variables such as migration and whether the spatial units become more or less reflective of ‘the local’ over time.
