Statistical Subdivision/ District

A Statistical Subdivision is defined in most States on the same basis as a Statistical Division but as a portion of the latter.

Generally, a Statistical District is a Statistical Subdivision that meets additional criteria. Most Statistical Districts contain an urban centre with a population of 25,000 or more and their boundaries, like those of Capital City Statistical Divisions, are delineated to contain the anticipated urban development of the centre for a period of at least twenty years. These fixed boundaries delineate areas which for general statistical purposes are free from the problems imposed by the moving boundaries of the majority of urban centres.

In selected cases, especially in Queensland, Statistical District boundaries have been delineated around urban centres with a population of fewer than 25,000, where there was a demand for intercensal population estimates for the area and where existing LGA boundaries were obviously inadequate for this purpose.

There are three cases where Statistical Districts are not equivalent to Statistical Subdivisions. They are the Statistical Districts of Gold Coast and Albury-Wodonga which cross State boundaries and each of which consists of two Statistical Subdivisions, and the Canberra Statistical District which consists of the Canberra Statistical Division and the LGA of Queanbeyan in New South Wales.

Statistical Subdivisions/ Districts are represented by a one digit numeric code allocated sequentially from 1 within each Statistical Division.
