It's a new year, and the ABS has an entire website of exciting statistics for you to explore. To give you a taste of what the ABS has to offer, the publications below are some that I have found particularly interesting this month.

Household Energy Consumption Survey, Australia: Summary of Results, 2012 (cat. no. 4670.0)
This publication contains really interesting statistics on household energy consumption in Australia. A feature of the publication that I found especially interesting was the comparison of dwelling energy, fuel consumption, and total energy expenditure by State and Territory. This publication covers topics including economic resources, dwelling characteristics, family composition of households and climates affects on household energy use.
