Year Book Australia

The Year Book, the ABS's flagship publication, was launched at ABS House by the Hon. Chris Pearce, Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer, on 21 January 2005 to invited guests, ABS staff and the media.

The Year Book Australia 2005 provides a comprehensive and definitive source of information about Australia. Over 900 pages long, it includes subjects such as population, income, housing, education, agriculture, prices and international accounts. Data is presented in tables, maps and graphs.

As part of ABS's centenary celebrations the 2005 Year Book also includes a special article on the history of the Bureau and a brief history of the Census of Population and Housing. A number of feature articles also show how our country has changed over the past 100 years. Articles on the completion of the Adelaide to Darwin railway and the short-term economic impact of the 2003 Rugby World Cup also feature in this issue of the Year Book.

To celebrate 100 years since the foundation of the ABS, both the hard copy Year Book and its CD-ROM companion are presented as a special offer in one package, making it great value for money.

The CD-ROM compliments the hard cover version by giving you rapid access to every subject. A simple interface and a full electronic index make it a convenient source of up to date information.
