ENHANCING THE POPULATION CENSUS
The information paper Enhancing the Population Census: Developing a Longitudinal View (cat. no. 2060.0) is due to be released on 20 April. The paper describes a proposal to enhance the value of 2006 Census of Population and Housing data by combining it over time with data from future censuses, and other ABS data. The information paper includes specific information on key issues on which submissions are sought, as well as providing examples of possible cases where the enhanced data provide potential statistical value. The ABS encourages interested parties to submit their views on the proposal. Those wishing to provide feedback can lodge a submission on-line through the ABS web site or on a paper form. The closing date for submissions is 6 May 2005. For further information contact Rosalie Butler on (02) 6252 6294, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
