ASGS (2011 Edition) - Indigenous Structure - Indigenous Location (ILOC) Boundaries

Indigenous Locations (ILOCs) are aggregates of one or more SA1s. ILOCs generally represent small Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with a minimum population of 90 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander usual residents. An ILOC is an area designed to allow the production of census statistics relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a high level of spatial accuracy while maintaining the confidentiality of individuals. For the 2011 Census, 1116 ILOCs have been defined to cover the whole of geographic Australia.

There are non-spatial ILOCs for Migratory – Offshore – Shipping and No Usual Address in each state and territory (S/T).

Indigenous Location Names

ILOC Names are allocated by ABS and are generally based upon a commonly identified name or combination of names for the area/community which the boundary encompasses. In locations encompassing multiple communities a combination of up to three distinct community names have been used to label the location.

Indigenous Location Coding Structure

Each ILOC has a unique eight-digit hierarchical code. ILOCs are sorted alphabetically by name within each IARE then allocated a two-digit code starting from 01. This is prefixed by the six-digit IARE code to complete the ILOC code. Special purpose codes are included as balancing items. SA1s allocated to these codes are not part of any official ILOC.

  • Codes ending in 94 are reserved for cases where people are coded to No Usual Address SA1s.
  • Codes ending in 97 are reserved for cases where people are coded to Migratory, Offshore and Shipping SA1s.
