Welcome to the 3rd edition of ABS' Science and Technology Statistics Update.
Australian policy makers and others increasingly see science and technology as a very important driver of economic progress. It is therefore crucial to them to have access to a reliable set of science and technology statistics. The purpose of the Update is to let you know about the range of science and technology statistics which are produced by the ABS and to provide you with information on statistical developments and data releases.
In this edition, we have included two special articles. The first presents previously unreleased data on household expenditure on IT goods and services. The second looks at the recent release of price index data on computer services.
We hope you find the Update useful and would appreciate any feedback you have to offer. Please send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (02) 6252 5019.
