Discover the 'Aspects of Social Capital, Australia 2006'

The Aspects of Social Capital, Australia 2006 (ABS cat. no. 4911.0) was released in July as a PDF file on the ABS web site. This is the first time the ABS has brought together data and analysis relating to social capital in a consolidated way.

What does this issue offer?

This publication brings together information from the General Social Survey and many other surveys, presented in the one place, information the ABS has about the way people in Australia relate to family, friends, safety and the wider community. It provides a background to the new information on people's networks and community participation collected in the 2006 General Social Survey.

A very useful publication for general interest and a good reference guide to:

  • Geographic and structural features of the Australian population
  • Topics on feelings of safety, and aspects of community support and social participation, such as recent contact and time spent with family and friends, help given to others and expectations about support from others, voluntary work and giving, caring, social activities including attendance at cultural venues and events, participation in sport,attendance at sports events and religious involvement.
  • The short articles presented for each topic area include graphics and summary information which highlight differences for population sub-groups of concern. Information is also presented at state/territory and Remoteness Area levels.
