WELCOME

Welcome to the fourth edition of Age Matters and my first as Manager of the National Ageing Statistics Unit (NASU). Firstly, I would like to take the opportunity to thank my predecessor, Dave Martyn, for his dedication and outstanding contributions to NASU. No doubt the biggest challenge for me is to build on the strong foundation that Dave has left behind. Secondly, I look forward to working with all of our clients and stakeholders.

A major highlight for this quarter is the official release of Census of Population and Housing: Ageing in Australia, 2001 (cat. no. 2048.0) on the 13 October 2003. You will find a feature article on this publication in this edition of Age Matters. Other topics of interest include the release of Population Projections, Australia, 2002-2101 (cat. no. 3222.0), details on the upcoming 2nd National Conference of Emerging Researchers in Ageing (ERA), and information on the imminent release of General Social Survey, Australia, 2002 (cat. no. 4159.0).

Finally I would like to thank you for your support of our website. As a result, our Ageing theme page is one of the most popular web pages on the ABS website. Your feedback and suggestions for improvement will ensure its continued success.

I look forward to bringing you future editions of Age Matters.

Maryann Wood
Manager
National Ageing Statistics Unit
