Understanding Demographic Data: Future Courses

'Understanding Demographic Data,' the popular one-day course offered by ABS Demography, will be held in Canberra on 30 November. To register contact victoria.allen@abs.gov.au or (02) 6207 0277.

  • The relevance of demographic data to society and the economy
  • Tools for demographic analysis, with practical exercises
  • Population dynamics such as population momentum, ageing and migration effects on the population profile.
