SALM 2016 ASGS changeover user guide

On this page

Overview

As of the June quarter 2019 edition of the Small Area Labour Markets (SALM) publication, estimates at the Statistical Area 2 (SA2) level are based on the 2016 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). The 2016 ASGS replaces the previous 2011 edition of the ASGS and reflects changes in Australia’s population, economy and infrastructure. Moving to the 2016 ASGS also brings SALM into line with the geographic structure underpinning the most recent (2016) ABS Census of Population and Housing.

In order to compile SALM using the 2016 Census Geography, however, it is necessary that the data used to produce the estimates are also available for this geographic structure. Namely:

  • ABS Labour Force Survey data at the Statistical Area 4 (SA4) level; and
  • Unemployment benefit recipient data at the SA2 level.

Accordingly, the reason for the change to the 2016 ASGS in the June quarter 2019 edition of SALM is that this is the first period for which both of these sources of data are available using the 2016 ASGS.

For more information on the 2016 ASGS, include images showing the changes to some SA2s, please see the ASGS publication (Catalogue no. 1270.0.55.001) on the ABS website.

What is the impact of the shift to the 2016 ASGS?

Moving SALM from the 2011 ASGS to the 2016 ASGS has had no impact on the vast majority of SA2s. Those SA2s that have been affected, have been in one of seven different ways:

  1. Series not broken and no change in SA2 code but a different name;
  2. Series not broken and no change in name but a change in SA2 code;
  3. Series not broken but a new name and new SA2 code;
  4. Two 2011 ASGS SA2s amalgamated to form a new 2016 ASGS SA2;
  5. One 2011 ASGS SA2 split cleanly into multiple 2016 ASGS SA2s;
  6. 2011 ASGS SA2s that have a break in series; and
  7. New 2016 ASGS SA2s not listed elsewhere in this guide.

Further, the changes have meant that a number of Local Government Areas (LGAs) have also experienced a break in series.

SA2s are considered to have had a break in series if a change in boundaries has changed (either increased or decreased) the population of the SA2 by more than five per cent. LGAs are considered to have a break in series if the redistribution of the population within and between the SA2s that comprise an LGA means that the LGA estimates concorded from 2016 SA2s would have a difference in population of more than five per cent from the estimates for the same LGA concorded from 2011 SA2s (see the section on LGA breaks for more details).

Each of these changes is explained in more detail below.

Please note that for every SA2 or LGA that is broken, smoothed data based on the 2016 ASGS boundaries will not be available until the March quarter 2020.

1) Series not broken and no change in SA2 code but a different name

The changes from the 2011 to the 2016 ASGS have meant that a number of SA2s have had changes in their name but no other significant changes. Smoothed series data for these SA2s are still available back to the December Quarter 2010. A list of the affected SA2s, with their old and new names, is provided in Table 1, below.

Example: In the March quarter 2019 edition of SALM there was an SA2 in Melbourne named Kensington. In the June quarter 2019, this SA2 is now called Kensington (Vic.) but the data series is not broken.

2) Series not broken and no change in name but a change in SA2 code

For the SA2s listed in Table 2, below, the name has remained the same and there has not been a significant boundary change but the SA2 code has changed. Note that SA2s in this group may have experienced a minor change in boundaries but not one that was large enough to constitute a break in series.

Example: In the March quarter 2019 edition of SALM there was an SA2 in the ‘Rest of Western Australia’ named Halls Creek, which had an SA2 code of 508041207. In the June quarter 2019, the SA2 is still called Halls Creek but the SA2 code is now 510011264 although the data series is not broken (while there has been a minor boundary change, it does not involve a large change enough to constitute a break in series).

3) Series not broken but a new name and new SA2 code

For the SA2s listed in Table 3, below, the name and the SA2 code have changed but the data series is not broken.

Example: In the March quarter 2019 edition of SALM there was an SA2 in Brisbane named Scarborough – Newport, with an SA2 code of 313051381. In the June quarter 2019, the SA2 is now named Scarborough – Newport – Moreton Island and has an SA2 code of 313051542 but the data series is not broken.

4) Two 2011 ASGS SA2s amalgamated to form a new 2016 ASGS SA2

In three instances, shown in Table 4 below, two 2011 ASGS SA2s have been amalgamated to form one 2016 ASGS SA2. For these amalgamated SA2s, it is possible to create a smoothed time series going back to the December quarter 2010 by summing the unemployment and labour force for the constituent 2011 ASGS SA2s, prior to the June quarter 2019, which has been done in the SALM publication and data tables.

Example: In the March quarter 2019 edition of SALM there were separate SA2s for Beeliar (507011149) and Wattleup (507011162). In the June quarter 2019, these SA2s have been combined to form Beeliar - Wattleup (507011259).

5) One 2011 ASGS SA2 split cleanly into multiple 2016 ASGS SA2s 

As shown in Table 5, below, there are many cases where a 2011 ASGS SA2 has been split into multiple SA2s in the 2016 ASGS. In each of the cases listed, this split was clean enough such that the vast majority (or in many instances all) of the 2011 ASGS SA2 is contained within the 2016 ASGS SA2s created from it. Because these splits have not involved other significant boundary changes, it is still possible to produce consistent estimates for the 2011 ASGS SA2 boundary going forward.

This can be achieved through the following steps:

  1. Using the unsmoothed series, accessible through the Explanatory Notes, calculate the estimated number of unemployed persons in the 2011 ASGS SA2 by simply adding together the number of unemployed persons from each of the 2016 ASGS SA2s into which the 2011 ASGS SA2 was split. The estimate of the labour force for the 2011 ASGS SA2 is calculated using the same process.
  2. The unsmoothed unemployment rate can then be calculated using the following formula:

unemployment rate = unemployment/labour force x 100

  1. To produce smoothed estimates of unemployment and labour force from unsmoothed figures, average the unsmoothed data over four quarters (to the reference quarter – so the smoothed unemployment estimate for the June quarter 2019 is the average of the unsmoothed unemployment estimate for the June and March quarters in 2019 and the December and September quarters in 2018).
  2. Once smoothed unemployment and labour force estimates have been produced, the smoothed unemployment rate is produced by dividing the smoothed unemployment estimate by the smoothed labour force estimate and multiplying it by 100 (ie, the same formula in step 2, above, but applied to the smoothed estimates of unemployment and the labour force).
  3. As per the explanatory notes in the Small Area Labour Markets publication, smoothed data are a more reliable guide to underlying labour market conditions in a small area.
  4. To obtain the latest available 2011 ASGS estimates, for comparison with the aggregated estimates produced using this process, please email the SALM inbox at SALM@employment.gov.au.

Example: In the March quarter 2019 edition of SALM there was a single SA2 for Wollongong (107041149). In the June quarter 2019, these SA2s have been split into Wollongong – East (107041548) and Wollongong – West (107041549).

To calculate the unsmoothed June quarter 2019 unemployment level for the 2011 ASGS SA2 of Wollongong, add the unemployment levels from the unsmoothed June quarter 2019 unemployment table for the 2016 SA2s of Wollongong – East (107041548) and Wollongong – West (107041549).

To calculate the unsmoothed June quarter 2019 labour force for the 2011 ASGS SA2 of Wollongong, add the labour force from the unsmoothed June quarter 2019 unemployment table for the 2016 SA2s of Wollongong – East (107041548) and Wollongong – West (107041549).

To calculate the unsmoothed June quarter 2019 unemployment rate for the 2011 ASGS SA2 of Wollongong, divide the unemployment level you have calculated following the instructions listed above, by the labour force calculated the same way, and multiply it by 100.

To produce a smoothed estimate for the June quarter 2019, first repeat the steps above to produce unsmoothed estimates for the March quarter 2019 and the December and September quarters 2018.

Then average the four quarters of unsmoothed unemployment figures to produce a smoothed unemployment estimate for the June quarter 2019 and average the four quarters of unsmoothed labour force figures to produce a smoothed labour force estimate for the June quarter 2019.

Finally, to calculate the smoothed June quarter 2019 unemployment rate for the 2011 ASGS SA2 of Wollongong, divide the smoothed unemployment level by the smoothed labour force and multiply it by 100, as per the formula in Step 2, above.

6) 2011 ASGS SA2s that have a break in series

A number of 2011 ASGS SA2s have experienced a break in series that is not associated with ether a clean split into smaller 2016 ASGS SA2s or an amalgamation. These cases are listed below and data for these SA2s should not be compared with their 2016 ASGS SA2 counterpart.

Example: While in the March quarter 2019 edition of SALM the SA2 of Greenvale – Bulla has the same name and SA2 code (210051246) as it does in the June Quarter 2019 edition of SALM, these two SA2s have had a significant boundary change such that in the unsmoothed series, data for this region for the March quarter 2019 and earlier is not strictly comparable with data for the region from the June quarter 2019 onwards.

7) New 2016 ASGS SA2s not listed elsewhere in this guide

There are a small number of new 2016 ASGS SA2s not listed elsewhere in this guide. These have generally been created from a small part of one or more existing SA2s but not in a way that they can be amalgamated to create a consistent time series with a 2011 ASGS SA2. These SA2s are listed in Table 7, below.

8) Breaks in series for Local Government Areas

While the LGAs presented in the June Quarter 2019 edition of SALM continue to be the LGA boundaries as at 2018-19, the nature of the system used to produce the estimates means that there are breaks in series for 66 LGAs. The LGA estimates in SALM are produced using a population-based correspondence that assigns SA2 data to LGAs, based on the proportion of an SA2 within an LGA. For a small number of LGAs, the weights for the SA2s in the 2011 SA2 to LGA and 2016 SA2 to LGA correspondences have changed by such an extent that the two correspondences no longer produce estimates for that LGA that can be considered to belong to the same data series. Where this is the case, the series has been broken in SALM. LGAs with a series break in the unsmoothed series between the March and June quarter 2019 are listed in Table 8, below.
