ABS is also developing a system which will streamline the CURF application process. This system will provide on-line application forms to replace the paper forms currently used to apply for access to CURFs. CURF Contact Officers will be able to manage existing registered CURFs, new CURF registrations and renewals from their desktop. If there is something you would like to see included in this system email your ideas through to firstname.lastname@example.org.

AUSTRALIA'S CHILDREN AND YOUTH CENSUS PUBLICATION
The ABS is currently compiling a Census thematic about Australia's Children and Youth. This publication will draw on data from the 2006 Census of Population and Housing to provide an overview of the population aged 0–24 years. The use of Census data allows for a more detailed analysis of the population than is possible with survey data, such as the examination of characteristics for small geographic areas and small population groups.
Comparisons with data from previous Censuses will be included in the publication to show how characteristics and circumstances of children and youth have changed over time. Major themes covered by the publication include population characteristics, living arrangements, education, working life and transitions to independent living. The publication will also profile specific target populations such as children and youth who are Indigenous, live in remote areas, are culturally and linguistically diverse and those who have a core activity need for assistance.
Census of Population and Housing: Australia's Children and Youth, 2006 (cat. no. 2059.0.55.001) is scheduled for release in April 2009.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
