NATSEM - Social and Economic Indicators - Marital Status SA2 2016

This dataset presents the marital status of the population by sex in small regions of Australia based on the 2016 Census and aggregated following the 2016 edition of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). The data has been provided by The National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM).

This indicator is the number and proportion of people in each of the Registered Marital Status (MSTP) categories by sex.

All indicators were extracted from the ABS Tablebuilder system using the usual residence profile. For usual residence data, the ABS moves people back to where they live, rather than using the location the data were collected (place of enumeration). Usual residence data is preferred for individual level data because it removes the effect of respondents travelling or holidaying.

For more information please view the NATSEM Technical Report: https://apps.aurin.org.au/gate/technicalreports/NATSEM/AURIN%20Social%20Data%20Technical%20Report%20Nov%202018.pdf.

  • AURIN has spatially enabled the original data provided directly from NATSEM.
  • Where data values are NULL, the data is either unpublished or not applicable mathematically.
  • The treatment of Not Stated and Overseas Visitor data is to exclude them from both the numerator and the denominator.
  • Methodology between the 2016 NATSEM and 2011 OECD data release may have changed, please refer to the technical report for parity status and specific changes.
