Latest Social Atlases available - Canberra, Darwin & Palmerston, Melbourne

The popular Social Atlas series has been released for the 2001 Census. If you need statistics about your capital city and prefer information to be presented on maps rather than in tables, the 2001 Social Atlases are the answer!

The Atlases for Canberra, Darwin & Palmerston and Melbourne were released in February 2003. The Social Atlases for Perth, Sydney and Hobart were released late last year. All LEP libraries receive a free copy of the Social Atlas for the capital city in their own State or Territory.

The maps in each Atlas present, at a glance, a picture of the key social, demographic and economic characteristics of the urban centres of each capital city. Nice and easy to interpret, the maps show the distribution of the data in different colours or shadings. With informative commentary highlighting the main features of each map, the Social Atlases make very interesting reading.
