State and Regional Indicators, Victoria is released on a quarterly basis with chapters updated when new data are available. Chapters and tables are only included when new data are available, so the number of chapters and tables may vary between issues.

A new chapter in this issue is Crime.

The table 'Condition of VicRoads Network, By Local Government Area - 2007-08' was expected to be published in this issue of the publication. The data are not yet available, and it is now expected that the table will be published in the December quarter 2009 release.


The Victorian Statistical Coordination Branch is reviewing the dissemination strategy for both State and Regional Indicators, Victoria and the newsletter Statistics Victoria (cat. no. 1100.2). Over the coming months, the review will consider the purpose, intended audience, content, scope, structure, format, delivery mediums, method of release, timing, production processes and resources for the two publications. It will explore options and propose new solutions for the dissemination of state and regional statistics for Victoria that are more cost effective to produce, and more relevant to clients. The review will take advantage of the changed ABS web environment to address user requirements. During the review, State and Regional Indicators, Victoria will continue in a quarterly web-based e-magazine format.

The review is at the stage of user consultation. As part of the consultations, an e-survey is included as part of this release of State and Regional Indicators, Victoria. The ABS would appreciate the assistance of users in providing feedback on the publication. You are invited to complete the short survey by accessing the link on the left navigator pane by 27 November 2009.
