NetNews

The ABS has put significant resources into continually improving its web site over the past few years. For example:

    a) new look for the ABS web site

    b) reorganisation of statistical information so it is easier to find

    c) removing prices from on-line statistical information

    d) improving site-search

This is not the end - the improvements will continue. User feedback will be an important input for future improvements.

Many of the major changes planned will be seen with the dissemination of 2006 Census data.

Output of the Census data has often been a catalyst for a major leap forward in dissemination technology used by the ABS - going back as far as the introduction of CD-ROMs for the 1986 Census.

2006 Census data output will lead the ABS web site to be more dynamic. The ABS is also looking at opportunities where dynamic presentations of data can be used to access other sources of data. Stay tuned.
