Ageing In Australia (cat. no. 2048.0)
This publication, to be released in September 2003, will be a useful resource for agencies with ageing policy responsibilities, researchers and the Australian community. While the major focus is on the number and characteristics of older Australians (persons aged 65 years and over), it also explores the ageing process in Australia by examining other age cohorts including mature age workers (45 years and over) and the very old (85 years and over). This analysis also reports on trends over time by comparing 2001 census results with data from previous censuses.
Topics included in the publication are: population; cultural diversity; living arrangements; economic environment; transport; education and technology.
Copies of Ageing in Australia (cat. no. 2048.0) can be obtained for $33.00.
