Attention: Chiefs of Staff and News Editors


Reminder: Statistician's Report to be released tomorrow 29 January

A Picture of the Nation: the Statistician's Report on the 2006 Census is being released tomorrow (29 January 2009) by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

The Statistician's Report examines contemporary issues in Australian society with the sort of depth only made possible by the analysis of a century's worth of population census figures.

The report looks at Australian society through two different filters - generational groups (birth cohorts such as Baby Boomers, Generation X and Y or the iGeneration) and life-cycle groups (people in similar situations such as one parent families, lone persons, families with and without children) - to discover the changes over time.
