The ABS web site - 48 million hits and 308,000 pages - and still counting!

The end of the 2003-04 financial year is a good opportunity to look at the changing nature of the ABS web site, and the changing pattern of use. The number of pages on the ABS web site has increased 58% in the last twelve months to approximately 308,000, with new content being added each day.

Not only has the size of the ABS web site increased, but use has also increased. The number of user accesses to the ABS web site has increased 35% from last financial year to 48,000,000!
