A NOTE FROM THE DIRECTOR
In addition to our work on the tasks noted above, 2001 will see the publication of a directory of ABS statistics of relevance to culture and leisure (a first for NCCRS); the release of the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications (a set of three classifications that will become the basis for future collections of culture and leisure data) (another first for NCCRS); the publication of updated statistics on paid and unpaid work in culture and in sporting activities; the release of data from the 1999-2000 Book Publishers Survey; and the creation of a culture and sport/recreation theme page on the ABS web site (another first). Furthermore, yet another first was the release on January 18th of ABS data on activities children undertake during their free time (see page 2).
Finally, as those of you who have read this newsletter in the past may have noticed, NCCRS has changed the look of its newsletter. Not only have we added more colour (for those of you reading the electronic version of this newsletter, just believe me, it is very pretty), we have given ourselves more space in which to keep readers informed of our activities. Our aim is to make this newsletter as useful as possible to you, the reader. In turn, any comments and suggestions that you have about our newsletter are welcome.
