PSMA’s Administrative Boundaries dataset is Australia’s most comprehensive national collection of:
- government boundaries, incorporating state and territory boundaries, local government areas, suburbs/localities, wards and town points
- statistical boundaries, incorporating Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) boundaries (2011 & 2016)
- electoral boundaries.
This dataset contains boundaries in eight themes, with layers of data to support a wide range of analysis and segmentation activities.
What is this dataset used for?
Administrative Boundaries is used for:
- Profiling – to build profiles of suburbs and wider areas by combining this data with social, demographic, economic and environmental data.
- Improved policy and services – to enable organisations to develop more accurate socioeconomic and demographic analysis for policy development and service delivery.
- Find nearest – to show internet or mobile phone users the nearest provider of a service or retailer.
- Emergency management – to identify areas under threat and recognising evacuation routes.
