The major evolutionary steps between versions are:
UAC to Version 1
- Fewer categories
- The urban cores and their peri-urban zones are combined to create functional urban areas. The size of the peri-urban zones areas are standardised and based on existing rationale for health service access and our understanding of what constitutes ‘rural health services’
- Major anomalies are corrected in the medium urban category i.e. base hospital facilities in medium urban areas are recognised
- The differences in the health services provided in major urban vs large urban vs medium urban areas is recognised by allocating each to a different category.
