Be prepared: Australian Social Trends to be released 12 July

The largest annual analysis of our society by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will be released on Tuesday 12 July at 11.30am (AEST).

The publication, Australian Social Trends (cat. no. 4102.0), contains many stories for news, specialist reporting and feature writers. Much of the great wealth of information goes unreported allowing almost unlimited opportunities for new story angles.

This year there will be special analysis on our population, our families and community, our health, our education, our work, our housing, our economic resources, and our environment.

At the time of release, the entire publication will be available on the ABS web site <> as html pages i.e. no downloading required.

Given the large size of the publication hard copies will be available by request only, through ABS capital city offices at 11.30am (AEST) on Tuesday 12 July. By request hard copies will also be delivered to the Canberra Press Gallery. Note: hard copies must be preordered at least two days before release to ensure availability.

The ABS recommends you start preparing early for this story by:
    • Putting it in the diary.
    • Familiarising yourself with both the typical content and how to find the publication on the ABS web site; by following the Australian Social Trends link on the left hand navigation panel on the homepage <>.
    • Advising us now if you would like a hard copy of the publication.
