Just before Christmas 2001, the National Centre for Culture and Recreation Statistics launched its Theme Page on the ABS Web site. The Culture and Recreation Theme Page is a valuable reference source for those seeking information about culture and recreation statistical resources and contacts. Readers can select a topic of interest - such as music and the performing arts, physical activity, or sport and leisure industries - and view details of ABS and some non-ABS articles and publications which contain statistics about that topic. The Theme Page also provides links to the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications, the NCCRS newsletters and other Web sites related to culture and recreation.

The NCCRS plans to update the contents of the Theme Page regularly. A significant update to watch out for in the coming months is the Directory of Culture and Recreation Statistics. This directory will provide details of a wide range of ABS data collections which contain data of relevance to culture and recreation.
