Ageing Statistics Program and Publications
The characteristics of the ageing population are explored in detail in a new publication Census of Population and Housing: Ageing in Australia, 2001 (Cat. no. 2048.0) which is due for release in June 2003. While the main focus of the publication is on the number and characteristics of older Australians (ie. persons aged 65 years and over), the ageing process in Australia is also explored by examining other age cohorts including mature age workers and the very old (those aged 85 years and over), and trends over time by comparing with data from previous Censuses. Topics covered include population structure, geographic distribution, mobility, indigenous status, birthplace and ancestry, language, religion, families and households, type of housing, housing costs, labour force participation, hours worked, income, transport, education, and use of computers and the internet.
Information about the full range of ABS data available from the Census can be found by accessing the ABS Catalogue of Products and Services (Cat. no. 1101.0) located on the ABS website. Much of these data are available free of charge and can also be accessed via the ABS website.
