The ABS plans to produce an electronic product available on the ABS web site containing a wide range of historical time series demographic data going back, where possible, to the beginnings of European settlement. It is envisaged that the major users of this data will be people in education - schools, colleges and universities.
A preliminary list of data items is currently being compiled covering the broad themes of population, births, deaths, marriages, divorces and migration.
We are keen to hear clients' suggestions for data content and the format in which the data should be presented on the web. Please contact Sue Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 6252 6141) if you have any ideas you would like to contribute or would like further information.
