Please contact Michelle Smith ( Research Nurse for the GCH project) if you wish to use our concordance files.
The concordance data files have a GCH category for every Statistical Area unit 1 (SA1) in New Zealand.
SA1s are small areas typically representing 100-200 people. They are the basic buliding blocks of the GCH maps. There is a list of SA1s in the files and beside each one it will categorise whether it is a U1-U2 or a R1- R3.
U= Urban R= Rural. U1 are main urban cities and R3 is most rural.
Disclaimer: We ask that you refrain from publishing anything until the GCH classification tool has been published, this will be happening in the near future.
