**Please read:** The AIMS: Address data table is part of the [set of comprehensive AIMS Address Tables](https://data.linz.govt.nz/set/87).
The Address table contains details relating to the creation and updating of an address including the version of an address.
This table uses a Primaryaddressid to manage the relationship between primary and sub-address. Sub-addresses are addresses contained within a primary address site, e.g. an apartment building, block of flats or marina. If the Primaryaddressid is populated the address is a sub-address. The Primaryaddressid will be captured over time. Core data associated with an address such as street number or road name is not stored in the Address table, this data is stored in the Address Component table. **Please Note:** The primary and sub-address funtionality will be added at a later date.
The comprehensive address dataset includes eight data tables and nine lookup tables. The dataset has been sourced from LINZ’s Address Information Management System (AIMS), a centralised database for the management of national addresses, including for electoral purposes. This set of normalised tables replaces the single Landonline: Street Address layer currently published on LDS.
This layer contains information advised to LINZ by Territorial Authorities (TAs). [Under the Local Government Act 1974 (section 319)](http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/1974/0066/latest/DLM420385.html) it is the responsibility of the TAs to advise LINZ (the Surveyor General) of all allocated addresses in their district.
For a simplified version of the data contained within these tables see [NZ Street Address](https://data.linz.govt.nz/layer/3353).
Please refer to the [Street Address Data Dictionary](https://data.linz.govt.nz/document/1627) for detailed metadata and information about this layer.
