This month's SA Stats presents a feature article highlighting water consumption trends and water conservation actions of South Australian households. Attention is given to the periods when water saving strategies were introduced by the South Australian Government, namely Permanent Water Conservation Measures (2003) and Level 3 Water Restrictions (2007).

Recent data from SA Water show that South Australian households reduced their average daily consumption of water from 756 litres (L) in 2000-01 to 501 L in 2009-10, a decrease of 34%. For the corresponding period, the state's daily water consumption per capita (or person) fell from 539 L to 385 L - a 29% decrease.

Topics which have been updated with new data in this month's issue of SA Stats include: Construction; Consumption; Demography; Housing Finance; International Merchandise Trade; Labour Force; and Water.
