description: Local Government Areas (LGAs) are an ABS Mesh Block representation of gazetted local government boundaries as defined by each state and territory. Please note that ABS approximated boundaries do not match official legal or administrative boundaries and should only be used for statistical purposes. Officially gazetted Local Government Areas change regularly. The ABS updates approximated Local Government Areas annually. Further information about these regions can be found in the following publication: Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS) Edition 3 https://www.abs.gov.au/statistics/standards/australian-statistical-geography-standard-asgs-edition-3/jul2021-jun2026
