Welcome to the fifth and final issue of Age Matters for 2003. It has been a busy year for the National Ageing Statistical Unit (NASU) with the main highlights including:
Another main highlight for NASU was the production of an information paper outlining what can be done with new and existing data in terms of addressing the big questions on ageing. A copy of this paper is included in this issue of Age Matters.
I am sure you will find the information contained in this issue useful reading over the holiday period, including: Australia's official population reaching the 20 million milestone; Australia's working age population projected to decline; Australia's older population on the increase; and, the age of women giving birth now older than ever.
Thank you for your support throughout the year. 2004 is shaping into an equally busy and even more productive year. I look forward to bringing you more news.
I hope you have a safe and happy holiday.
