ACT STATISTICAL PUBLICATIONS
Readers may have noticed that the latest issue of In fACT - Statistical Information on the ACT and Region (cat. no. 1308.8), February 2011 issue released 22 February 2011, was the FINAL issue. This is part of a review of the whole suite of ACT and state-based indicators publications and newsletters occurring over the next few months.
A new national publication is currently being developed for release in July 2011. The new product, State and Territory Statistical Indicators (cat. no. 1367.0), will make it easier to locate comparable data across the jurisdictions as it will have consistent content for all states and territories. The data content will also be more timely than at present, with updates published within a few days of their first release to the ABS website rather than quarterly or annually. Data will be presented graphically, along with some descriptive and explanatory comments, and occasional feature articles.
The new publication will effectively replace the content of our existing publications In fACT - Statistical Information on the ACT and Region (cat. no. 1308.8) and ABStract, Statistics News, Australian Capital Territory (cat. no. 1344.8.55.002). ABStract, Statistics News, Australian Capital Territory (cat. no. 1344.8.55.002) will also be discontinued, as from this issue.
