SMALL AREA DATA ABOUT NSW: FIRST ISSUE RELEASED NOVEMBER 2006
Previously available only as a consultancy service, the ABS has recently released New South Wales Regional Statistics (cat. no. 1368.1), a free web-based product providing regional statistics from a wide range of sources.
This product provides users with a snapshot of economic and social conditions in their local region and is a useful source of data for Local Government, State Government, students, business and community organisations. Data for 2005 are presented for all Local Government Areas (LGAs) in NSW. The data are presented in excel format, providing flexibility for data manipulation. The product contains tables for a range of topics including, population, health, family and community, education, work, economic resources and activity, crime and justice, and transport. Detailed explanatory notes and geographic area comparisons are also included.
The ABS will be updating and expanding the product regularly with new data from both ABS and other sources. Providing clients with a snapshot of data for all regions across NSW, the product complements the time series data available in the National Regional Profile and the upcoming release of 2006 Census of Population and Housing data.
