Welcome to the final issue of Age Matters for 2004. It has been a busy year for the National Ageing Statistical Unit (NASU) with the main highlights including:

  • an article for Australian Social Trend 2004, 'Mature age workers' (cat. no. 4102.0);
  • presentations and conference paper for the Australian Population Association and Australian Association of Gerontology Conferences; and
  • release of the first three mature age persons statistical profile (cat no.4905.0.55.001).

Building on the information paper developed last year, another main highlight for NASU, has been the drafting of an Information Development Plan (IDP) for the improvement of the quality, coverage and use of ageing-related statistics. Further details on the IDP are provided within this newsletter.

I am sure you will find the information contained in this issue useful reading over the holiday period, including: labour force characteristics of mature age people, ageing and disability, and an outline of a number of new ABS releases with and ageing focus.

Thank you for your support throughout the year. 2005 is shaping into an equally busy and even more productive year. I look forward to bringing you more news.

I hope you have a safe and happy holiday.

Maryann Wood
Assistant Director
