All about SA - on the ABS web site

We continue our series on state Theme pages on the ABS web site.

Libraries in South Australia may like to promote the newly updated South Australian information on the ABS web site to their clients in Library and Information Week. A recent review of the pages in the Themes section of the ABS web site has seen a major revision to its content. The result is a set of pages with updated links, help pages and a vastly expanded list of statistical resources.

The Statistics page in particular has been completely re-written. A completely new page has been added - the South Australia Statistical Concepts page. It contains a short explanation of ABS classifications and why they are essential.

The South Australian LEP Coordinator, Pam Balfour, assisted by colleague Megan Desira, first reviewed what was best practice in the provision of regional information, before putting many hours into producing the revised pages. The revamped South Australia pages have been edited to ensure that they all contain consistent and clear navigation elements to assist the user's progress through and between pages by reducing the need to use scrolling and the back button.
