COVID-19 cases by location mismatched LGA and LHD

I’ve noticed that two cases in NSW COVID-19 cases by location appear in South Western Sydney Local Health District (LHD), but are assigned the Local Government Area (LGA) of Penrith.

I am interested in understanding how the LGA, LHD and postcode are assigned. Are the LGA and LHD simply mapped from the postcode? Or are they specified independently?

What happens in situations such as this where a postcode crosses three LGAs and two LHDs?

Hi David.

That’s an interesting question. The data is provided to us by NSW Health. I’ve asked them to clarify your question. I’ll give an update when they get back to me.
