Welcome to the FINAL issue of Tasmanian Statistical News.

The ABS has some exciting plans that will see a new national publication replace a number of Tasmanian publications. The new product, State and Territory Statistical Indicators (cat. no. 1367.0) is currently being developed for release in July 2011 and will have consistent content for all states and territories. Data will be more timely and will also be presented graphically, along with some commentary, and occasional feature articles. A statistical newsletter will also be linked to the new product.

This final issue of Tasmanian Statistical News contains details about how the ABS is looking to recruit thousands of Census Collectors and Area Supervisors for the 2011 Census of Population and Housing. Also covered is the commencement of the 2011-13 Australian Health Survey, the biggest health survey ever conducted in Australia.

There is also information about the 2011 Agricultural Census which also commences later this year.

Learn about the Australian Government's efforts to make it easier to link social, economic and environmental data in Commonwealth collections.

Find out about a number of roadshows that will visit Tasmania in the first half of 2011:

  • the new statistical geography called Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS)
  • Measuring Australia's Progress
  • Land Accounts
  • Business Demography
Also advertised is the upcoming free seminar in May 2011, Introduction to ABS Products and Services, which will show you how to access ABS information, particularly the wealth of free data available on the ABS website.

We hope you find this newsletter interesting and informative, and we welcome your feedback and comments.
