ABS Releases Snapshot of Victorian Regions Tomorrow

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) will release its annual snapshot of rural and regional Victoria at a luncheon in Bendigo tomorrow.

Accompanying the ABS publication is a series of 2001 Regional Profiles for Victoria. The profiles contain statistical information for South-Western Victoria, Western Victoria, Northern Victoria, North-Eastern Victoria and Gippsland regions.

Media serving regional and rural Victoria will find a range of relevant small area information, including some which is specific to local government areas.
