AbstractThe Census of Population and Housing is the most extensive statistical collection undertaken by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). It collects a variety of social and demographic information from all members of the community. The results of the census are used by government, industry, academics, many other sectors of the community and private individuals for planning and decision making activities that can affect the lives and welfare of all Australians. Census statistics are used in researching many social problems and as a basis for planning by industry and commerce within the community. Census data also provide an essential basis for the preparation of population estimates at the national, State and local government levels. The Collection District Master File (CDMF) holds a record for each collector's district (CD) in Australia with information which: (a) allows the aggregation of CD data to higher level geographic areas without recourse to elaborate recoding procedures; and (b) facilitates comparisons with previous census data. Each CD record contains linkage to the 1966 Census field reference and includes basic counts and associated higher level geographic codes. Counts include the number of occupied and unoccupied dwellings, the number of males and females, and the number of non-private dwellings. The CDMF contains 21 531 logical records (CDs). Each logical record on the Master File contains 29 variables and has a record length of 200 characters.

notes: A code showing the 1968 Commonwealth Electoral Division in which each CD is situated. This process has involved a degree of approximation as the electoral boundaries occasionally cut across CD boundaries and in such cases each CD has been given the code of the division in which the majority of the population and dwellings were enumerated. Note that an additional variable (c71_state_ced1968_id) has been created for this file, combining the state (V1) and electoral division (V13) indicators to produce a consistent national identifier.

notes: A five digit code which is assigned alphabetically to each locality within each State. The code list used for allocation of locality codes to CD's is based on an updated version of the 1966 locality tabulation. Initially, in 1966, codes started at 00010 for the first locality in each State and progressed, in tens ie.00010, 00020, 00030 etc. For the 1971 Census, localities that had to be added were given intermediate codes eg 00015 where only one was inserted and 00013, 00015, 00017 etc where more than one was inserted. The aim was to leave sufficient space in the code list to allow more codes to be inserted at subsequent censuses while maintaining a consistent alphabetic code within each State. The ABS publication Geographic Code List (2141.0) contains a list of locality names corresponding to the codes.

notes: This is a three digit numeric code containing the last three digits of the postcode allocated to the CD. The first digit, which is missing, is as follows: New South Wales = 2 Victoria = 3 Queensland = 4 South Australia = 5 Western Australia = 6 Tasmania = 7 Northern Territory = 5 Australian Capital Territory = 2 Each CD has been allocated to one postcode area. There is an element of approximation in those cases where a CD contains addresses belonging to more than one postcode area but the CD has been allocated to the area containing the bulk of the population. This is of particular importance in some large rural CD's containing a number of localities with different postcodes but applies also to individual urban CD's.
