1 - Geocode accuracy recorded to appropriate surveying standard
2 - Geocode accuracy sufficient to place centroid within address site boundary
3 - Geocode accuracy sufficient to place centroid near (or possibly within) address site boundary

1. Date fields are supplied in character format (YYYYMMDD). You may need to change the date format to one that suits your applications.
2. The geocode latitude and longitude is provided only for addresses with a geocode reliability code of 2 or 3 to ensure the accuracy of the geocode.
3. There will be no change to the provision of the five digit business industry code in the ‘agency file’. However the four-digit ANZSIC will now be included in the ‘business location’ file.
