2004 Year Book Australia Out Now

Just released, the 2004 Year Book Australia has been sent to all LEP libraries. This year's issue has a special focus on Indigenous issues, as well as information on the wider Australian society and economy.

Available as a beautifully presented hard bound volume, the 2004 Year Book Australia is also in full text on the Australia Now web pages.

Back in 1908, the first Australian statistician, G. H. Knibbs, described ABS Year Books as covering Australian statistics in terms of the individual States, the progress of Australia as a nation and a comparison of Australia and other leading industrial nations. He also pointed out a feature of the publication is its use of maps and diagrams. And it hasn't changed in 2004.

Year Book Australia provides a user friendly introduction to statistics about Australia and can be the starting point for answering many a reference question from your clients.

The front cover of the 2004 Year Book features a painting commissioned by the ABS, a collaborative work of 35 artists from the Warlukurlangu Artists Aboriginal Association of Yuendumu in the Tanami Desert north-west of Alice Springs.
