  • About this Release


A Statistical Account of the Seven Colonies of Australasia, was compiled between 1890 and 1904 by the New South Wales Statistician, Timothy A. Coghlan. The eleven volumes bring together statistics for each of the colonies of Australia and New Zealand and are complemented by analysis and commentary. The publication also includes chapters on political divisions, areas and boundaries, climate, parliaments and defence much like in the current Year Book Australia.

Coghlan's expressed aim, as stated in the Preface to the first volume, was to 'exhibit at a glance the position held by each Colony individually, and by the country as a whole, with regard to all matters connected with its moral and material welfare'.

A Statistical Account of the Seven Colonies of Australasia and its later title, A Statistical Account of Australia and New Zealand was published by the New South Wales Government Printer.
