Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification: Type of Activity

"The Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC) is jointly produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) and Statistics New Zealand (Statistics NZ). ANZSRC is the collective name for a set of three related classifications developed for use in the measurement and analysis of research and experimental development (R&D) undertaken in Australia and New Zealand. The three constituent classifications included in the ANZSRC are: Type of Activity (TOA), Fields of Research (FOR), and Socio-economic Objective (SEO).

Australian and New Zealand Standard Offence Classification

"The third edition of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Offence Classification (ANZSOC) has been developed for use within Australia and in New Zealand for the production and analysis of crime and justice statistics. It replaces the second edition of the Australian Standard Offence Classification (ASOC) and incorporates a title change from ASOC to ANZSOC and corrects some minor typographical errors only. The classification content and structure, which was updated in the second edition of ASOC following a review of the first edition of ASOC released in 1997, remains unchanged.

Australian Transport Index Thesaurus

"Keywords in this Thesaurus are referred to as preferred terms. Preferred terms are used in indexing the Australian Transport Index (ATRI) and are shown in bold type. Non-preferred terms are not used for indexing and are shown in italics; their role in the Thesaurus is to lead to the preferred term. Terms in the Thesaurus are listed in a single alphabetical sequence and appear in word-by-word order, so that 'Access road' appears before 'Accessibility'. This Thesaurus is designed to assist Australian researchers to access Australian and overseas literature on land transport.

Department of the Environment and Heritage Thesaurus

"The DEH thesaurus is broadly based on a subset of the Thesaurus of Environmental Protection Terms, Department of Environmental Protection, WA, 1995. Over the years, current specific Commonwealth terminology has been incorporated into the thesaurus. The Department of the Environment and Heritage thesaurus is used to provide access to DEH web resources."

Australian Emergency Management Terms Thesaurus

"The thesaurus includes preferred terms, non-preferred terms, related terms and scope notes where available. The Australian Emergency Management Terms Thesaurus provides a list of terms commonly used across the emergency management sector. The thesaurus includes terms likely to be used by the sector, but not those relating to specific areas of particular emergency services."

Australian Standard Geographical Classification

"The ASGC provides seven hierarchies of geographical areas. Each structure is designed to suit different statistical purposes. This edition has four current structures. The Main Structure and the Statistical Region Structure cover the whole of Australia. The Local Government Area Structure and the Statistical District Structure cover only part of Australia. The three remaining structures, Urban Centres and Localities, Section of State and Remoteness Structures, have not been included as Census Collection Districts are no longer defined.

The Astronomy Thesaurus

"The main aim in producing this reference work is to try to standardise the terminology in the field of astronomy for the purposes of aiding unambiguous library cataloguing and more precise recall of data from computer databases. The thesaurus is intended for use by astronomy librarians and scientists. Its compilation was originally requested during a meeting of Commission 5 (Documentation) of the International Astronomical Union at the New Delhi General Assembly of the IAU in 1984.

Australian Statistical Geography Standard

"The ASGS brings all the regions for which the ABS publishes statistics within the one framework and will be used by the ABS for the collection and dissemination of geographically classified statistics from 1 July 2011. It is the framework for understanding and interpreting the geographical context of statistics published by the ABS. The ABS also encourages the use of the ASGS by other organisations to improve the comparability and usefulness of statistics generally.
