NSW Regional Statistical Overview released

Have you ever needed to find out anything about the state of New South Wales? An extensive array of useful statistics can be found in a new publication called New South Wales: A Statistical Overview (Cat. no 1338.1), to be released on 9 June 2005.

Alice Thompson, from the Statistical Coordination Branch in NSW, says that she sees this publication "as being a useful resource for Local and State Government agencies, universities and other education facilities, research organisations and the general community".

This publication contains an overview of current social, economic and environmental indicators for NSW. For example, it provides statistics on health, education, crime and justice and transport. Data that the ABS has collated from a range of ABS and non-ABS sources is presented in detailed tables rather than text. "The data is easy to read and summarised: it provides an avenue for further research," explained Ms Thompson.

It will be published annually. NSW LEP libraries will receive a print copy of this title.
