This month's SA Stats presents a feature article that examines the measures of federal voter turnout and informal voting by state, before focusing more closely on South Australia and its eleven Commonwealth Electoral Divisions (CED). These measures were compared against the marginal cohorts of age, educational attainment and English proficiency to ascertain any relationship present in the recent 2010 federal election. The article combines published data from the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) and ABS 2006 Census data.

Other Explanatory Notes are not included in SA Stats in the form found in other ABS publications. Readers are directed to the Explanatory Notes contained in related ABS publications referenced in the feature article.

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


The final release of the current SA Stats product will be 28 June, 2011. Currently the ABS is developing a new national output - State and Territory Statistical Indicators (cat. no. 1367.0), anticipated release in July 2011. This product will provide an overview of the population, economy and environment for each of the Australian states and territories.
