The Australian Bureau of Statistics now provides all the information on the ABS website (www.abs.gov.au), free of charge. From 27 January, the new look ABS website will be released with improved features including topic based searching. Both are exciting developments!
NASU are looking forward to progressing the Information Development Plan (IDP) for Ageing this year. The IDP will identify the key data gaps in Ageing statistics and set out a plan of action for the ABS and other key agencies. Consultations with key high level stakeholders are planned for March – May. A draft plan will be released mid year for wider consultation. If you would like to be included in this process, then please contact us.
We are also keen to hear from you regarding our new format. Does it provide you with the right information? Is there something else you think we should include? If you have any comments on this newsletter or on the Ageing theme page then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
