The 1999 ACT Regional Statistics launch next Wednesday

Which was the only statistical subdivision (similar to a cluster of suburbs) in the ACT to record population growth during June 1997 and June 1998?

To find out the answer to this and many more questions relating to the ACT, come to the launch of the 1999 edition of Regional Statistics, Australian Capital Territory, by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) on Saint Patrick's Day.

The launch will take place at 11am on Wednesday March 17 at the Civic Library in East Row. A range of statistics for each area of the ACT, including Queanbeyan district, will be revealed at the event.

The median age of North Canberra population... The value of building approvals in Belconnen... The percentage of area that the Woden Valley covers in the ACT... The number of student enrolments in Weston Creek-Stromlo... The total population density of Tuggeranong... The number of building approvals in South Canberra... The number of dwelling units created in Gungahlin-Hall... The labour force statistics in Queanbeyan...
