Welcome to the 8th edition of the ABS'
Science and Technology Statistics Update, a biannual electronic newsletter which provides you with information on statistical developments and data releases in the science and technology field.

We hope you find the Update useful and would appreciate any feedback you have to offer. Please send any comments to Andrew Major whose email address is andrew.major@abs.gov.au.

During 2002, the Science and Technology Statistics area of the ABS underwent structural and name changes. Work in the field is now centred in two locations (previously three). The New Economy National Statistics Centre is located in Canberra and has responsibility for, among other things, general strategy, research and analysis, and statistical standards. The New Economy Business Statistics Centre is located in Perth and will progressively take on responsibility for conducting the suite of new economy collections and disseminating the results. The changes form part of a more general restructure of ABS economic statistics.
