In 2003, the ABS created a National Children and Youth Statistics Unit (NCYSU) in response to the need for a statistical evidence base to support community and government policy relating to children and youth. The NCYSU's objectives include: maintaining dialogue with key stakeholders about emerging issues, data gaps and needs; developing statistical products relating to children and youth; providing statistical leadership regarding children and youth statistics. The NCYSU is guided by an Advisory Group comprising ABS and non-ABS representatives. For further information contact Carrington Shepherd on (08) 9360 5255, email:

In November, the NCYSU launched the Children and Youth Theme Page on the ABS web site. The theme page provides information on key ABS data sources, and relevant non-ABS sources. The NCYSU newsletter details recent developments in children and youth statistics. The Theme Page can be accessed through the ABS web site by selecting 'Themes' from the navigator bar, then clicking on 'Children and Youth' under the 'People' sub-heading.
