Always vital - ABS demographic statistics

Demographic information - births, deaths, marriages and divorces - are vital statistics in libraries.

Access to this data has become simpler with the May 2004 release of a new web title, Demography Australia (Cat. no. 3311.0.55.001). This is free on the web and provides an annual summary of key Australian demographic data. It is not produced as a print title.

To keep up to date between the annual releases of Demography Australia, refer to the quarterly Australian Demographic Statistics (Cat. no. 3101.0). This one is produced in print and is sent to all LEP member libraries. But libraries like it online too - in fact Australian Demographic Statistics has been the title most often downloaded by libraries using eLEP.

A comprehensive guide to sources of ABS demographic statistics will appear in the November issue of the LEP Newsletter.
