  4. A complete list of all SA1s in the state/territory or division may not be displayed as not all SA1s where there is zero enrolment are included.

Demographic classification of electoral divisions

Demographic classification of electoral divisions is based on the following criteria:

  • Inner Metropolitan – situated in capital cities and consisting of well-established built-up suburbs.
  • Outer Metropolitan – situated in capital cities and containing large areas of recent suburban expansion.
  • Provincial – outside capital cities, but with a majority of enrolment in major provincial cities.
  • Rural – outside capital cities and without majority of enrolment in major provincial cities.

Classifications are allocated following a redistribution of electoral divisions in a state or territory.
