Victorian Year Book 1999 released today
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released its 111th edition of the Victorian Year Book today. The edition contains a comprehensive and detailed statistical review of various aspects of the economy and social conditions in Victoria. It also contains selected historical statistics for Victoria back as far as 1841 for some series.
The Year Book, for the first time, includes a chapter on regional statistics. It presents key economic, social and demographic statistics illustrating some of the differences in the population dynamics, labour force, industry structures and general economic activity by various geographic regions down to local government Level. Both Australian Bureau of Statistics and non-ABS data are used. The Year Book contains a full range of data collected by the ABS, supplemented with information from Victorian Government departments and authorities. The feature article for 1999 is on rural and regional Victoria which was prepared jointly by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet and the Department of Infrastructure.
The 1999 Victorian Year Book is a valuable reference tool, and source of stories for media, with chapters on economic trends; government; climate and natural environment; births, deaths, marriages and divorces; social and welfare; health; crime and justice; transport and communication; a range of industry chapters and more.
