Northern Territory: The people, the land, the economy
According to a publication profiling the Northern Territory released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) today births in the Territory outnumbered deaths by approximately four to one in the year ending June 2000, compared to early last century where deaths outnumbered births by around two to one.
Regional Statistics Northern Territory, 2001 profiles the land, people and economy of the Northern Territory (NT), and includes a regional overview of the Territory, together with information ranging from population, demographics, employment, education, health, and housing, to agriculture and fisheries, mining, transport, tourism, and local government finance.
A wide range of data in the publication is provided through the cooperation of NT and Commonwealth Government agencies and other organisations.
