1976 CD field code

The 1976 CD field code for each CD is made up of the State code, followed by census division, census subdivision and CD codes. The parts of this code are made up as follows:

State

A single digit code applies to each State and Territory as follows:

    1 = New South Wales
    2 = Victoria
    3 = Queensland
    4 = South Australia
    5 = Western Australia
    6 = Tasmania
    7 = Northern Territory
    8 = Australian Capital Territory

Census Division

These are the major control areas used for the collection of census data and are represented by a two digit numeric code allocated in geographical order within each State starting in the North West Corner of the State.

Census Divisions generally correspond to the Commonwealth Electoral Divisions existing at the time of the Census, and adopt the same names. The possible Census Division code values and their meanings are as follows:

Census Subdivision

Census subdivisions divide Census Divisions into Field Group Leader workload areas, and contain an average of 10 CD's. Subdivisions are designated by a two digit numeric code allocated within Census Division in geographic sequence.

Collection District

The CD is the smallest geographical area used in the collection and dissemination of census data. CD's are designated by a two digit numeric code allocated sequentially from 01 within each census subdivision. The number of CD's in any one subdivision falls in the range1-25.

Where the subdivisions and CD's within them for 1976 are comparable with those for 1971 the CD code has been retained. However for situations where subdivisions and CD's within them are not comparable between 1971 and 1976 the CD code has been allocated in the following manner:

(i) Subdivision not comparable--CD codes have been re-allocated in geographical order within Subdivision.

(ii) Subdivision comparable but CD isn't--For 1971 CD's which have been split, one part retains the 1971 number and the other takes the next available "free" code in the Subdivision. For 1971 CD's which have been amalgamated, the new composite 1976 CD has been given the code of the 1971 CD with the lowest original number.
