Data for Victoria and major regions
Major Regions include the Greater Melbourne GCCSA (Greater Capital City Statistical Area) and the eight non-metropolitan SA4s (Statistical Area Level 4). Grand totals for these eight regions are presented as "Victorian Regions". All data for these regions can be downloaded in one file.
Data for Statistical Areas in the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS)
Statistical Areas are those defined and used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) in the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). Data are provided for all regions from Statistical Area Level 2 (SA2) and above. Data for these regions are compiled into two files: one for population by age groups and one for total population, household and dwelling projections.
Data for Local Government Areas (LGA) and Victoria in Future Small Areas (VIFSA)
Victoria’s 79 municipalities plus Unincorporated Victoria are listed as LGAs. Within each LGA data are presented at the VIFSA level. VIFSA is a customised set of regions designed to fit exactly within LGA boundaries, whereas some ASGS regions cross LGA boundaries. Data for these regions are compiled into two files: one for population by age groups and one for total population, household and dwelling projections.
