CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

State and Regional Indicators, Victoria is released on a quarterly basis with chapters updated when new data are available. Chapters and tables are only included when new data are available, so chapter and table numbers may vary between issues.

A new chapter in this issue is Roads.

Changes have been made to the structure of some tables in two chapters: Work and Income, and Trade.

From this issue, only a HTML version of the publication will be available. A PDF version will no longer be produced.


FORTHCOMING CHANGES

The Victorian Statistical Coordination Branch is reviewing the dissemination strategy for both State and Regional Indicators, Victoria and the newsletter Statistics Victoria (cat. no. 1100.2). Over the next six months, the review will consider the purpose, intended audience, content, scope, structure, format, delivery mediums, method of release, timing, production processes and resources for the two publications. It will explore options and propose new solutions for the dissemination of state and regional statistics for Victoria that are more cost effective to produce, and more relevant to clients. The review will consult with users and take advantage of the changed ABS web environment to address user requirements. During the review, State and Regional Indicators, Victoria will continue in a quarterly web-based e-magazine format.
