WELCOME FROM THE DIRECTOR
WHAT'S NEW IN REGIONAL STATISTICS
Welcome to the third edition of the 'What's New in Regional Statistics' newsletter.
If you have read our previous newsletters, you will have noticed that this issue looks quite different! The new format includes a 'feature article' highlighting a key regional release in the last few months. There are also many other smaller articles, and we have grouped those for easy reading into the four topic headings that you would be familiar with on the ABS website (Economy, Population/People, Industry, Environment/Energy).
What's in this issue?
Our feature article is on a new series which uses personal income tax data from the Australian Taxation Office and was released on 27 March 2008. Read about Persons with Main Source of Income from Own Unincorporated Business.
Other articles include 'Business Counts by Region' (in Economy), the latest 2006 Census data releases, 'Regional Population Growth' (both in Population/People), Agricultural Census data (in Industry), and 'Water Use on Australian Farms' (in Environment/Energy).
Under Other News and Contacts we have information about new help pages on our website for Local Government, the Northern Territory Government Statistical Regions and an update on the NatStats conference later this year. This page also includes a list of all articles in this issue.
We hope you find this newsletter interesting and informative, and we welcome your feedback and comments.
