Welcome to our first issue for 2005, a particularly exciting year for the ABS, as it marks a century of service by the national statistical agency to the Australian community.

All LEP libraries receive the Year Book but you can expect to find a copy of the Year Book Australia in many other libraries too - even in some remote communities in the outback! The centenary edition contains many special articles to interest and inform library users.

Have you seen the new Population Pyramid of Australia on our web site? The NetNews article may whet your appetite to explore this great interactive tool. A word of caution - you may find yourself lingering longer than you may expect!

CURFs - what are they? Check out the special centre page spread to find out about CURFs - a veritable goldmine of statistics for researchers.

The Shortcuts section on page 8 reminds you about a good source of help to libraries - the LEP pages on the ABS web site.

Best wishes for a happy and prosperous 2005!
