The ABS received funding in the May Budget to enable provision of free publications on the web.

From 1 July, the range of free content on the ABS web site which was previously limited to "Main Features" for most statistical releases will be expanded to include:

    1. electronic publications (PDF and HTML based content);
    2. electronic "publication tables", ie tables in spreadsheet or data-cube format which otherwise would have been included in a printed/PDF publication; and in particular
    3. electronic State/Territory "publication tables" that complement national "publication tables".

Additional further data including most, if not all, remaining priced standard products, ie:
    1. time series spreadsheets, and
    2. other spreadsheets and data-cubes.
is also under consideration as free-on-the-web content which may become available from 1 January 2006.

Inquiries regarding these changes can be made to the ABS's National Information Referral Service phone 1300 135 070 or e-mail client.services@abs.gov.au
