Correspondence Files

The correspondence files below can be used to understand the relationship between Employment Regions and other geographic units.

The files list the geographic units which make up each Employment Region. Geographic units that do not fall entirely within a single Employment Region are given a percentage according to how much of the population falls within the Employment Region. For these Employment Regions, the correspondence method may lead to small errors.

The correspondence files contain ABS quality ratings which indicate how closely the geographic units match each Employment Region. Care should be exercised in using correspondence files to convert data from one geographic basis to another, particularly where the quality rating is ‘Poor’, as the resulting data may not reflect the actual characteristics of the geographic areas involved. Further information about the ABS quality ratings is available from the ABS website

Please note that the correspondence files are based on the total population counts at the time of the 2016 Census. The geographic distribution of the total population may differ from the geographic distribution of the job seeker caseload population.
