2006 CENSUS SOCIAL ATLAS SERIES
Launched on 17 March, the 2006 Census Social Atlas Series (cat. no. 2030.0) provides at-a-glance views of the major characteristics of all Australian capital city areas, and (for the first time) selected regional centres, providing a visually informative alternative to traditional tables and statistical spreadsheets. The Social Atlases are easy to understand with thematic maps and accompanying commentary including key social, demographic and housing characteristics. For example, the topic Cultural Diversity is featured in Chapter Two of each Social Atlas. This covers information on Indigenous Australians, people born overseas, recent arrivals, and people not fluent in English.
