Welcome to the last issue for 1999.
This edition of Census Update sees the continuation of the census user consultation phase. An important aspect of this process is the release of ABS Views on Census Output Strategy and the accompanying questionnaire.
Please take the time to read the Information Paper and to fill out the questionnaire. We need your views and opinions in order to make 2001 Census products and services even more relevant to the needs of our clients.
On other ABS web site developments, there is now a 'Census' button on the ABS homepage. This button gives you access to information on 1996 Census products and services. As the 2001 Census approaches, more and more information will be added about where things are for 2001.
This edition also includes a number of articles on how census data is required and being used in everyday life by a number of different organisations.
Finally, we would like to say a big thank you to Carolyn Kennedy who worked on Census Update for a number of years. Carolyn has recently taken on a new role in the ABS. Her involvement with this magazine was considerable over the years, ensuring that clients were informed and aware of events from each census.
