Concordance files

Tēnā Koutou

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.
