Measuring Wellbeing-Understanding Social Stats
12 December 2001 at 12:12 pm
Are you always searching for the latest figures or social data about the field in which your company or your partnered Not for Profit operates? The Australian Bureau of Statistics has released a comprehensive explanation of the way social statistics are organised to help those trying to make an informed analysis of social issues.
The publication, Measuring Wellbeing: Frameworks for Australian Social Statistics covers nine areas of concern; population, family and community, health, education and training, work economic resources, housing, crime and justice and culture and leisure.
It presents the broad framework that the ABS uses to organise Australian social statistics, and includes discussion of how the ABS defines the area, its importance to the individual/societal wellbeing, key social issues and the data sources to address these issues.
The material is seen as a valuable resource for welfare economists, social analysts, educators, government and corporate advisers and others wanting to understand social statistics systems in Australia.
It’s also a useful companion reference to the social issues reported in the ABS’s annual Australian Social Trends publication, available online at www.abs.gov.au (Catalogue No. 4102)
Pro Bono Australia has been given access to Measuring Wellbeing in electronic PDF format.
