    Hello Victor,

    I read with interest, your blog on how to classify Australia’s local areas. This is an ongoing “issue” we tend to have in-house when trying to distinguish between Metropolitan, Urban, Semi-Rural, Rural areas, especially when the population of main cities are spreading outwards, the area classifications should change with it.

    I wanted to ask, how do you classify your areas? Do you use a hard and fast rule?

    Or could you point me to a source where I may obtain this definition, or even a list of already classified geography?

    I have tried looking through the ABS site, but have been unsuccessful in finding this information.

    Thank you in advance,
