This is Australia

18Feb08

Year Book Australia is a weighty tome produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). It is an overview of the statistics of our country, referencing the economy, social conditions, climate, population, the environment, government, education, health, welfare, crime and defence.

Tim Colebatch reports in The Age:

IT’S the land where people live longer than anywhere else in the world except Japan. It’s a land that is getting steadily hotter, and where rainfall seems to be shifting from where people live to where they don’t. And it’s also a land where people are growing steadily richer while the land grows poorer. This is Australia 2008, as unveiled yesterday by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in its annual flagship. 2008 Year Book Australia.

Head to the ABS site to gather some data for your Major Project topic. Thanks to 1 + 1 =3 for the tip.
