Selected Publication Release Dates
REGIONAL STATISTICS 2009
The 2009 Northern Territory Regional Statistics publication has undergone a considerable redesign in consultation with users. The new-look publication will be available quarterly as an electronic magazine. A combination of data cubes (spreadsheets), links to data sources, and feature articles will be prepared each quarter and presented in an easy-to-access format concentrating on particular topics. It is planned that the November quarter will contain information on NT geography, population, and the environment and also a feature article focusing on this data. Each quarter will build on the previous quarter by adding more topics and feature articles.
The first issue will be available on November 17. For last year's issue, see Regional Statistics, Northern Territory, 2008 (cat. no. 1362.7).
NATIONAL ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER SOCIAL SURVEY RESULTS OUT SOON
The first release of data from the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Survey, 2008 (NATSISS) will be released in late October 2009. The NATSISS provides information about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population of Australia on a range of areas of social concern including family and culture, health, education, law and justice, labour force and housing. In response to emerging information needs, the survey was expanded to improve the availability of data about Indigenous children. The first release will provide summary indicators from the 2008 NATSISS for three population groups by both state and remoteness: persons aged 15 years and over; children aged 4-14 years; and children aged 0-3 years.
Requests for more detailed data or additional items can be made through the ABS consultancy service on 1300 135 070. More information about the conduct of the survey, scope and data outputs are available at the ABS website.
