SYDNEY... A SOCIAL ATLAS
Sydney... A Social Atlas 2006(cat. no. 2030.1) is expected to be released on 17 March 2008. The atlas is one of a series of publications that use maps to highlight key characteristics of the population in Australia's capital cities and selected regional centres, based on data collected in the 2006 Census of Population and Housing. This atlas includes maps for Sydney, Wollongong and Newcastle and the Central Coast with brief commentary to accompany each map, highlighting the main features of the mapped characteristic. These characteristics are categorised into broad themes covering Population, Cultural Diversity, Education, Labour Force, Income, Families and Households, and Dwellings.
