INTRODUCTION
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is Australia's national statistical authority. It collects and disseminates information on a wide range of economic, social and demographic topics for Australia, its States and Territories.

Whether a small business owner, a marketing manager in a large corporation, a policy maker, a student, or whatever your interest, the ABS provides a range of information services designed to deliver statistical information to you. These include:

Information consultancy service;
Subscriptions;
ABS bookshops;
Electronic products and services;
ABS statistics on the Internet;
Library access to ABS information; and
Statistical consultancy service.

INFORMATION CONSULTANCY SERVICE
To satisfy your information needs, the ABS provides an information consultancy service on a fee-for-service basis, ranging from a simple information inquiry to specialised in-depth data investigations. Information is provided in the format of your choice, for example, a hardcopy report (which can be mailed to you), or a file on computer diskette or compact disk (or a file which can be emailed to you).

ABS publications only contain a fraction of the available data.

SUBSCRIPTIONS
If you want access to ABS publications on a regular basis, the ABS subscription service is the solution. With subscription, you receive your choice of publications directly through the mail.

To subscribe to ABS publications, you order in advance on an annual basis. You can amend your subscription at any time and include new products as they become available. You may also subscribe to on-line services or a range of special non-publication data services.

ABS BOOKSHOPS
ABS bookshops, located in ABS offices in each capital city, sell all publications released by the ABS which are currently in print.

If you are interested in purchasing a publication, you may visit any ABS bookshop in person or you may phone or fax to order a publication using your Bankcard, Visa, Mastercard or American Express credit card.

ELECTRONIC PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
In addition to printed publications you can access a wide range of statistical information through various electronic media, giving you instant access to a wide variety of information and the power to analyse and sort data via your personal computer.

You can obtain access to over 40,000 time series through the on-line PC Ausstats service or purchase the Integrated Regional Database (IRDB98), a CD-ROM product containing small area current and historical Australian economic, agricultural, social, demographic and environment data.

To find out more about the range of electronic data services available, contact Information Consultancy Services in any of our offices.

THE INTERNET
Basic ABS statistics are also available to the public via the Internet. The ABS StatSite contains ABS data across a range of subjects, including key economic indicators and also includes a full address list of Library Extension Program libraries across Australia.

The ABS StatSite address is <www.abs.gov.au>.

University students-providing that your university is a subscriber, you can obtain a more extensive range of ABS data via the Internet-the ABS Time Series Service. Your university librarian should be contacted for assistance.

LIBRARY ACCESS TO ABS INFORMATION
If you wish to access the ABS statistical information, you can do so at any ABS office library. ABS office libraries are available for public reference, generally by appointment only (please contact you local ABS office for further information). These operate on a 'self-help' basis. However, ABS librarians are able to facilitate fee-based information consultancies for clients.

ABS statistical information is also available to the community through the libraries participating in the Library Extension Program via public, State, TAFE and university libraries. Staff in these libraries have received training in the use of ABS information and are able to meet many information needs of the general community. Many school libraries also hold ABS publications.

STATISTICAL CONSULTANCY SERVICE
The ABS also offers a specialised statistical consultancy service to clients.
