Stress less with the ABS



Ever looked at the ABS site? It is packed with statistical reports, tables, spreadsheets, data cubes and information papers. Statistics are collected on most aspects of Australian life and they capture information about our economic performance, the well-being of our population and the condition of our environment.

One way to search the site is to select Statistics (like in the picture above) and then select a catalogue number:
1. General
2. Census of Population and Housing
3. Demography
4. Social Statistics
5. National Accounts, International Trade
6. Labour Statistics and Prices
7. Agriculture
8. Secondary Industry and Distribution
9. Transport

After selecting one of these you can select from several sub-categories.
Have a go and contact Library staff if you need a hand !
