Due to data unavailability, the 'Unemployment Rate Estimates, by Local Government Area' table, previously published in the work and income chapter, has been omitted from this issue.

As a result of changes to reporting requirements, road information from VicRoads is now presented in only two categories: Arterials and Freeways. Consequently, the 'Condition of Main Roads' table in the roads chapter has been replaced with a new table, 'Condition of VicRoads Network' (Table 5.1).

For this issue, three new tables collected by the ABS in the Household Preparedness for Emergencies survey, 'Presence of Selected Safety Precautions and Tenure Type', 'Emergency Plan, by Difficulty in Evacuating in an Emergency' and 'Most Recent Emergencies in the Last Two Years' have been added to the health and safety chapter.


The statistics shown are the latest available as at 23 July 2008.

Explanatory Notes in the form found in other ABS publications are not included in State and Regional Indicators, Victoria. Readers are directed to the Explanatory Notes contained in related ABS publications.

Users are advised that small area estimates presented in this publication should be used with caution.


For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070 or Pam Boulton on Melbourne (03) 9615 7880.
