ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Mature age persons have been identified as a key population group in terms of policy development to address the challenges associated with the ageing of the Australian population. The Mature Age Persons Statistical Report draws on relevant ABS and non-ABS data sources to provide a comprehensive analysis of the characteristics of mature age persons, ie persons aged 45-64 years. Topics will be released in seven monthly issues covering Population and Cultural Diversity in the October issue, Labour Force in the November issue, Health in the December issue, Housing in the January issue, Living Arrangements in the February issue, Education and Training in the March issue, and Community Life in the April issue. In each issue, data are presented in a tabular, graphic and textual form, mainly at a national level, with a limited number of tables and graphs at a more detailed geographic level.
