2.3 General description of the manner in which each proposed division has been constituted

  1. The tables in the following pages set out how each proposed Division is constituted and are arranged under Statistical Local Areas (SLAs). Each SLA comprises a number of CCDs that applied at the 1996 Population Census.
  2. The SLA is the most widely used unit in the presentation of census data and collectively covers the whole of the Northern Territory without gaps or overlaps. SLAs correspond, in the majority of cases, to Local Government Areas (LGAs). Where a particular LGA is substantially different from the general run of LGAs in terms of size and economic significance, the LGAs can be split into a number of SLAs. For reasons of availability of data, the SLAs used for this redistribution are those in place at the 1996 Census.
