August is such an exciting month for the ABS as all our hard work and preparation culminates in Census Night. The ABS has great plans for disseminating 2006 Census data and you can take a sneak peek at what is to come by visiting the Census link on the ABS web site. We have re-released some 2001 Census data in the new format, and LEP Coordinators are happy to visit your library and teach you how to use the new system. Call your state coordinator now to arrange for some training.
The feedback we have received about the extension search engine on the ABS web site has been overwhelmingly positive. Read all about this arrangement in the NetNews article. In this issue we focus on two of our most popular flagship publications - Australian Social Trends and Measuring Australia's Progress. This newsletter highlights the most recent issues of these two publications.
And of course there is training news, reviews of the latest ABS publications, and the popular 'Shortcuts'.
P.S. Don't forget to return your completed 'LEP Newsletter' survey form included in this month's issue. Your feedback will directly contribute to improving the format and delivery of this newsletter.
