A new approach to the Culture and Sports compendia

The publications Arts and Culture in Australia: A Statistical Overview (cat. no. 4172.0) and Sports and Physical Recreation: A Statistical Overview, Australia (cat. no. 4156.0) - more commonly known as the compendia - provide a one-stop-shop for data related to the Culture and Sports sectors. While it is great to have all the data in the one location, being published once a year has meant that the compendia do not always contain the most current documents. To help provide you with the latest information, we are moving to a rolling release process.

From April 2011, the website contents will be updated as new data becomes available. This will see online versions of each compendium offering the most up-to-date data possible. The first rolling update for the Sports compendium will occur on 13 April 2011.

If you still prefer to have a hard copy of the compendia to thumb through as needed, we will publish an annual PDF format in December each year. This will contain all the updates that have been made to the online version during the preceding 12 months.
