Standard Australian Classification of Countries

The Standard Australian Classification of Countries (SACC) is the Australian statistical standard for social statistics classified by country. The SACC is a classification of countries based on the concept of geographical proximity. In its structure it groups neighbouring countries into progressively broader geographical areas on the basis of their similarity in terms of social, cultural, economic and political characteristics.

The full classification can be downloaded from the Australian Bureau of Statistics website: SACC ABS Cat. no. 1269.0.
