NEW AND IMMINENT DATA RELEASES
Measures of Australia's Progress (cat. no 1370.0) was released on 21 April 2004. For almost 100 years, the ABS has been measuring Australia's progress through a multitude of statistics relating to Australia's economy, society and environment. For the most part, our statistical publications have focused on each of these broad areas in isolation. That is, until now. 'Measures of Australia's Progress' is an annual publication that looks at the inter-relationships between the economy, society and the environment, to encourage discussion and debate about society and how our country is progressing.
Further details are in Measures of Australia's Progress (cat. no. 1370.0) . For further enquiries please contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.
