From the Editor

          Today Census material continues to be a primary source of information and the latest release of data, which includes Family and Labour Force data, Time Series and Indigenous Profiles, Classification Counts, Final Estimated Resident Population data and the Thematic Profile Series, represents the bulk of second release data.

          These datasets provide you with an even greater opportunity to get a deeper understanding of Australian people and Australian society. I encourage you to read the articles in this issue for explanations of the datasets.

          I am also very pleased to announce the availability of the entire range of Social Atlases: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart, Darwin and Canberra.

          If you need statistics about your capital city and prefer information to be presented on maps rather than in tables, a Social Atlas is the perfect census resource for you.

          The Atlases really do make interesting reading and provide numerous fascinating insights into Australian capital cities, there is an article on the series in this issue. If you would like to view the Atlases, drop into one of our ABS bookshops; there is one located in every capital city! Or, you can purchase immediately using the order form included.

          You will be interested to know we have provided selected Basic Community Profile data for all Statistical Local Areas in Australia on the internet. Click here to obtain free selected Basic Community Profile data which is on this web site.

          The internet represents an ideal vehicle for disseminating data and the ABS continues to develop further opportunities for disseminating ABS data.

          Hope you enjoy this first issue of Census Update for 1998, your comments and feedback are always welcome.
