These datasets have been designed to increase students' understanding of ABS data & statistics in general, while giving them a fascinating insight into the lives of Australians. A good example is Dataset Soc4 which shows what field of study Australians are pursuing at various ages. This in turn can be used to indicate the kind of knowledge and skills Australians will have, as well as help predict skills shortages.

The data used in the sets have been extracted from a wide range of ABS publications and adapted to make them easy to use, print and graph. Data within the sets has been updated with the latest data available, at the time of publication. If you want other data, you can access all online ABS publications through the Statistics page on the ABS website (abs.gov.au).###

Notes:
(a) Due to a change in collection methodology, life expectancy tables produced by the ABS prior to 1995 differ from those published thereafter in a number of important respects. Therefore they are not comparable. See 3105.0.65.001 - Australian Historical Population Statistics, 2008, Explanatory Note 53
(b) Please note, intervals for periods 1971 to 1995 are irregular due to changes in collection cycles
(c) Excludes Jervis Bay Territory from September quarter 1993. See paragraph 13 of the Explanatory Notes.
(d) Includes Other Territories from September quarter 1993. See paragraph 13 of the Explanatory Notes.

Notes:
(a) Western Australian sexual assault figures may be understated (see Explanatory Notes paragraph 72).
(b) Victimisation rates are expressed as victims per 100,000 of the ABS Estimated Resident Population (ERP). These rates generally accord with international and state and territory practice, and are calculated using the midpoint of the reference period (i.e. 30 June).
