AUSTRALIA'S YOUTH, 2001
The characteristics of youth (15 to 24 year olds) are explored in detail in a new publication, Census of Population and Housing: Australia's Youth, 2001 (cat. no. 2059.0). This publication provides a snapshot of young people across a range of areas of social concern, including Indigenous and cultural background, family relationships, participation in education and the labour force, income levels, and the use of computers. In 2001, one-third of Australia's youth were counted in NSW, and the state accounted for over a quarter of Australia's Indigenous youth population. Further information can be obtained from the Children and Youth Statistics theme page, found under the 'Themes' link from the ABS web site.
