ABS Analytical Community Sets Focus for 2008-09The ABS Analytical Community was established in mid-2007, through the creation and collaboration of the three analysis branches in the Bureau: Analytical Services Branch, Economic Analysis and Reporting Branch, and Social Analysis and Reporting Branch. The aim of the Community is to undertake methodological and applied policy-relevant analysis in order to enhance the value-add of ABS data and products.
The 2008-09 work program for the Analytical Community has been developed and reflects a number of emerging issues in Australian government and the community. Key areas of focus for the work program include the following:
1) Methodological analysis and research
2) Economic analysis and research
3) Social analysis and research
The 2008-09 analysis forward work program was compiled through a process of internal and external user consultation, including the establishment of an external analysis reference group which is comprised of senior representatives from a range of Government agencies, as well representation from the academic sector.
The ABS remains committed to undertaking relevant and high quality analysis to better inform Government and community decision-making.
