Enrichments for Australia Addresses

Enrichments for Australia Addresses

You can configure
Informatica Address Verification
to include address enrichments in the validated Australia addresses. Address Verification bases the enrichments on geographical areas that the Australian Bureau of Statistics defines.
To receive address enrichments for Australia, install the latest supplementary reference data files for Australia and ensure that the valid license keys are available for the data files.
Address Verification provides enrichment data for the following statistical elements:
CCD06
A seven-digit code that represents a census collection district that the Australia Bureau of Statistics defined for the 2006 census. A census collection district is an area that a census data collector might cover in a ten-day period. In urban areas, the district might comprise 220 homes. In rural areas, the district might comprise fewer homes and the geographical area might increase.
GCCCode
A five-character alphanumeric code that identifies the greater capital city (GCCSA) statistical area to which an address belongs. A greater capital city statistical area comprises multiple level-4 statistical areas.
There are 16 spatial GCCSA regions, including eight regions that represent the Australian state and territory capital cities and eight regions that cover the rest of each state and the Northern Territory. In addition, there are 18 non-spatial greater capital city statistical areas.
The five character code includes a single-digit state and territory identifier and a four-character GCCSA identifier.
GCCName
The name of the greater capital city statistical area to which an address belongs.
Greater capital city statistical areas are named for the cities they represent or, if they do not identify a city, for the rest of the state or territory that they represent.
GNAFID
A 14-digit code that identifies an address in the Geocoded National Address File (GNAF). Australian government departments and organizations recognize the code as a persistent, unique identifier for the address.
MeshBlock11
An 11-digit code that identifies the mesh block to which an address belongs. MeshBlock11 represents the areas that the Australian Bureau of Statistics defined for the 2011 census. A mesh block represents the smallest geographical area that the Australian Bureau of Statistics uses to generate statistical information.
Mesh blocks are building blocks for statistical information rather than areas for which the Australian Bureau of Statistics releases information. The Australian Bureau of Statistics builds statistical areas and regions from mesh blocks. Mesh blocks broadly align with land use, such as residential use, commercial use, or parkland. A mesh block might contain thirty to sixty dwellings, although some mesh blocks are designed to contain no dwellings.
MeshBlock16
An 11-digit code that identifies the mesh block to which an address belongs. MeshBlock16 represents the areas that the Australian Bureau of Statistics defined for the 2016 census.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics might maintain statistical information for some mesh blocks that it defined for the 2016 census.

SA1Digit7No
A seven-digit code that identifies the level-1 statistical area that an address belongs to but that does not provide the full hierarchy of geographical information that SA1MainNo provides. The seven-digit code comprises the state and territory identifier, SA2 identifier, and SA1 identifier.
A level-1 statistical area is typically the smallest area for which the Australian Bureau of Statistics releases statistical data.
SA1MainNo
An 11-digit code that identifies the level-1 statistical area to which an address belongs. A level-1 statistical area is typically the smallest area for which the Australian Bureau of Statistics releases statistical data.
The 11 digits of the SA1MainNo code include the values of the larger areas in the statistical area hierarchy. That is, the SA1MainNo includes a state and territory identifier, SA4 identifier, SA3 identifier, and SA2 identifier in addition to the SA1 identifier. The final two digits in the code identify the level-1 statistical area. In this way, the SA1MainNo uniquely identifies the area to which the address belongs.
SA2Digit5No
A five-digit code that identifies the level-2 statistical area that an address belongs to but that does not provide the full hierarchy of geographical information that SA2MainNo provides. The five-digit code comprises the state and territory identifier and the four-digit SA2 identifier.
A level-2 statistical area is a physical area that broadly defines a single social or economic community. A level-2 statistical area comprises multiple level-1 statistical areas.
SA2MainNo
A nine-digit code that identifies the level-2 statistical area to which an address belongs. A level-2 statistical area is a physical area that broadly defines a single social or economic community. A level-2 statistical area comprises multiple level-1 statistical areas.
The nine digits of the SA2MainNo code include the values of the larger areas in the statistical area hierarchy. That is, the SA2MainNo includes a state and territory identifier, SA4 identifier, and SA3 identifier in addition to the SA2 identifier. The final four digits in the code identify the level-2 statistical area.
SA2Name
The name of the level-2 statistical area to which the address belongs. Each level-2 name is unique, and each name contains no more than forty characters. In an urban area, the name is based on the suburb or suburbs that the area covers. In rural areas, the name is based on the locality that the area covers.
SA3Code
A five-digit code that identifies the level-3 statistical area to which an address belongs. A level-3 statistical area comprises multiple level-2 statistical areas.
The five digits of the level-3 statistical areas include the values of larger geographical regions. That is, the SA3Code includes a state and territory identifier and SA4 code in addition to the SA3 identifier. The final two digits in the code identify the level-3 statistical area.
A level-3 statistical area generally covers a population of between 30,000 and 130,000 people.
SA3Name
The name of the level-3 statistical area to which the address belongs. Each level-3 name is unique, and each name contains no more than forty characters. SA3 names reflect the names of the cities, towns, or rural areas that they cover.
SA4Code
A three-digit code that identifies the level-4 statistical area to which an address belongs. A level-4 statistical area comprises multiple level-3 statistical areas.
The three digits of the level-4 statistical areas include the values of the largest sub-state regions in the main structure of the Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS). That is, the SA4Code includes a state and territory identifier and SA4 identifier. The final two digits in the code identify the level-4 statistical area.
A level-4 statistical area contain at least 100,000 people. In regional areas, a level-4 statistical area might include between 100,000 and 300,000 people. In urban areas, a level-4 statistical area might include between 300,000 and 500,000 people.
SA4Name
The name of the level-4 statistical area to which the address belongs. Each level-4 name is unique, and each name contains no more than forty characters. SA4 names reflect the names of the cities, towns, or rural areas that they cover.
STECode
An unique one-digit code that represents a state or territory.
STEName
Represents the name of a state or territory.
