SA2 stands for “statistic area level 2”, which is a spatial circumscription used by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and has been introduced to replace “Statistical Local Areas” (SLAs) to get a more consistent population size. SA2 is comparable with suburbs at city level and with smaller towns plus surroundings in rural areas. SA2 levels might not necessarily align with Government Area boundaries (Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2017).
