Population by Age and Sex, Australian States and Territories, June 2009 (cat. no. 3201.0) provides estimates of population for each state and territory classified by sex and single years of age (0 - 84); also grouped ages, sex ratios, median and mean ages of the population.

Life Tables, by state and territory, 2006-2008 (cat. nos. 3302.1.55.001 to 3302.8.55.001) contain state and territory life tables for males and females for the reference period. A life table is a statistical model used to represent mortality of a population. In its simplest form, a life table is generated from age-specific death rates and the resulting values are used to measure mortality, survivorship and life expectancy.

Australian Social Trends, December 2009 (cat. no. 4102.0) presents statistical analysis and commentary on a wide range of current social issues. New articles are released quarterly and are organised into eight chapters, representing the following broad areas of interest: population; family and community; health; education and training; work; economic resources; and housing, as well as a chapter of articles covering other areas of social concern. Each chapter is supported by a set of summary tables including key social indicators which provide an overview of social change over the past decade, as well as how social conditions differ across Australian states and territories. A set of international tables compares Australia with 17 other nations. Data available varies with each issue.

Chronic Disease In Adults, Australia, 2007-08 (cat. no. 4838.0) draws primarily on data from the 2007-08 National Health Survey. This publication presents information on the prevalence, co-morbidity, risk factors, and mortality associated with selected chronic diseases in Australian adults. Some data are available for older persons.

Time Use on Recreation and Leisure Activities, 2006 (cat. no. 4173.0) contains a selection of national data, from the 2006 Time Use Survey, on time spent by persons aged 15 years and over on recreation and leisure activities. Some data are available for older persons.

Retirement and Retirement Intentions, Australia, July 2008 to June 2009 (cat. no. 6238.0) presents information on retirement for people aged 45 years and over. For those who are still in the labour force, information is available about current job and retirement intentions. For those people who are not in the labour force, data items include age at retirement; reason retired; income sources in retirement, and use of any lump sum payments.

Job Search Experience, Australia, July 2009 (cat. no. 6222.0) provides estimates of unemployed persons classified by difficulties in finding work, duration of current period of unemployment, active steps taken to find work, whether looking for full-time or part-time work, educational attainment, and number of spells of looking for work in the previous 12 months. Estimates can also be cross-classified by demographic information such as state, sex, age, marital status and country of birth. The publication also provides estimates of employed persons who were formerly jobseekers but were now (as at the survey reference period) employed and were successful in securing that job in the previous 12 months. Estimates can also be cross-classified by demographic information such as state, sex, age, marital status and country of birth.
JANUARY 2010

Australian Labour Market Statistics, January 2010 (cat. no. 6105.0) draws together labour statistics from a range of ABS household and business surveys, to provide an overall picture of the labour market.

FEBRUARY 2010

Pensioner and Beneficiary Living Cost Index, December 2009 (cat. no. 6467.0). The Consumer Price Index (CPI) is designed to measure price inflation for the household sector as a whole. The Government requested the ABS produce a new index - the Pensioner and Beneficiary Living Cost Index (PBLCI). The Government will use the PBLCI to index base pension rates where it increases at a higher rate than the CPI.

Underemployed Workers, Australia, September 2009 (cat. no. 6265.0) provides information on visible underemployment. Persons who worked less than 35 hours in the week prior to the survey who would have preferred to work more hours were asked about whether they were looking for work with more hours, available to start work with more hours, and their experience in looking for work with more hours. Other information includes, the duration of the current period of insufficient work, and the number of extra hours preferred. Estimates can be cross-classified by labour force demographics such as state, sex, age, marital status and birthplace.
