Updated ABS directory of transport statistics

The second edition of the Directory of Transport Statistics,released today by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, provides a comprehensive reference of over 100 sources for those interested in transport statistics.

Transport activities included in the Directory range from personal travel to work to the commercial transfer of gas and fuels by pipeline. Transport organisations, industry associations, policy makers and researchers are expected to benefit from the expanded directory, which was last released in 1994.

The Directory provides a description of major transport statistical collections in Australia from government, academia and the private sector. It includes data produced, geographic coverage, details of publications and other products, and the availability of historical data plus contact details. Indexes are also provided for quick references to sources and subjects.

Australian transport contributes approximately 5% annually to Australia's Gross Domestic Product and has enormous economic and social impact on the life of every Australian.

The Directory of Transport Statistics (cat. no. 1132.0) is available from ABS Bookshops. Review copies are available for Media on request. Contact Catherine McDonald on 02 6252 6728 to arrange a copy.
The Directory is also available electronically from this site.
