NSW Statistics

  • Is NSW growing faster or slower?
  • What has happened with household income over the last decade?
  • Which industries contribute the most to income and employment growth?
  • What are the key trends for health, education and crime?

NSW in Focus, 2008 (cat. no. 1338.1) provides a snapshot of activity within the state. Drawing upon both ABS and non-ABS sources, NSW in Focus has twelve chapters presenting a rich array of social, economic and environmental data.

New in this year's publication is the inclusion of "Statistical Highlights" which provides some analysis and graphs on selected indicators. Each chapter also features a summary table of selected indicators allowing users to track changes over time, and a list of data sources which are a helpful reference for further research.

Feedback: Have Your Say
The ABS is actively seeking feedback on NSW in Focus content and indicators. You can contribute by clicking 'Have Your Say' on the Summary page of the publication.
