2000 Victorian Year Book released today
The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) released the 112th edition of the Victorian Year Book today. It provides readers with a comprehensive statistical overview of the social and economic milieu in Victoria. The Year Book uses a wide range of ABS data, supplemented with information provided by Commonwealth and State government departments, and other organisations.
The 2000 Victorian Year Book contains a feature article entitled "Developments in Education", written by the Department of Education, Employment and Training. One of the many things the article reveals is that government schools in Victoria are the largest users of information technology in Australia, with more than 134,000 computers.
The move towards the use of information technology and multimedia is just one of the more significant developments in education in recent years, as described in the 2000 Victorian Year Book.
An expanded chapter on regional statistics is another feature of the 2000 Victorian Year Book. It contains a wide variety of statistics, sourced from both the ABS and other organisations, for Local Government Areas in Victoria.
The 2000 Victorian Year Book is a valuable reference tool and source of stories for media with chapters on population, labour force, climate and natural environment, education, government, transport and communications, health, crime and justice, trade, tourism and culture, finance, prices and expenditure, manufacturing, primary industries, and building.
