Water and the Murray-Darling Basin - A Statistical Profile, 2001-01 to 2005-06 (First Issue) (cat. no. 4610.0.55.007)
This publication presents a range of water, social, environmental and economic statistics relating to the Murray-Darling Basin. This region produces a high proportion of Australia's agricultural production and uses approximately 70% of the water applied to agriculture in Australia. Approximately two million Australians live in the Basin, and are mainly employed in retail, health and agriculture. The region is environmentally significant in terms of internationally recognised wetlands, red gum forests, and the river ecosystem itself.

Monitoring Inequality Website - the Public Health Information Development Unit
The South Australian Strategic Plan (SASP) contains 98 targets 'to benchmark or measure our progress over time', and the Government has indicated that these will be assessed and results will be published every two years.
The website of the Public Health Information Development Unit (PHIDU) includes a section on Monitoring Inequality, which analyses 29 targets (or supplementary measures) from the revised South Australia's Strategic Plan (January 2007), taking an inequality perspective. The intention in presenting the data in this way is to add another dimension to the information already available in the Plan.
Included on the website are:
For each identified target (or supplementary measure) from South Australia's Strategic Plan, an analysis of inequality is shown as an 'Indicator measure'. As in many cases an exact data match with the target definition is not available, a 'proxy' measure is shown. Trend data are also displayed where possible, so that progress in addressing inequality can be monitored over time. For each target, data are presented for the total population, for the Aboriginal population, and for an Indigenous/ non-Indigenous comparison.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
