How NSW Measures Up
New South Wales' vital statistics were put on show today in the release of the Year 2000 edition of the State's Year Book by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
The New South Wales Regional Director of the ABS, Mr Greg Bray said the New South Wales Year Book "has always been an important reference on the current facts and figures of the State".
"The New South Wales Year Book comprehensively reviews all statistical aspects of New South Wales social, economic, government and environment conditions and is supplemented with information from many other NSW Government departments and authorities," he said.
New features in this 80th edition of the Year Book include a section dealing with Information Technology and the Internet, a new chapter focussing on the fast growing service industries and an article on household safety and home injuries in NSW. A historical timeline detailing major events in NSW since 1788 and selected historical statistics back to 1901 are also included.
"The New South Wales Year Book is an excellent resource on New South Wales and a good on-going source for media reporting," Mr Bray said.
