Section of State

Each CD has been allocated a single digit Section of State code as follows:


0 = Major urban (CD is part of an urban centre of 100,000 persons or more).
1 = Other urban (CD is part of an urban centre of 1,000-99,999 persons).
2 = Bounded rural locality. (The basic criteria for bounding a rural locality
    are that the locality must have an expected population of 200 or more at the
    census and it must be able to have a meaningful and/ or generally accepted
    boundary drawn around it. Thus a bounded rural locality will contain 200-999
    persons.)
3 = Rural balance.
4 = Migratory.

NOTE:	(a) Known holiday resorts with less than 1,000 persons are classified as
        urban and given a Section of State code 1 if they contain 250 or more dwellings
        of which at least 100 are occupied.
	(b) Migratory refers to persons who on census night were on board ships in
        Australian ports or travelling between two Australian ports, or who were
        enumerated on long distance trains, buses or aircraft.
