Printing Options
There are two ways to print Statistical Products from the ABS website.

1. Print Page:
This option allows you to print the body of the page you are currently viewing in a print friendly format.

2. Print All:
The 'Print All' option builds on the 'Print Page' option, by combining all or selections from Main Feature and Explanatory Notes pages of a statistical product into one document and allowing you to print in a print friendly format.
Only webpages on the Summary and Explanatory Notes tabs can currently use this functionality.  Attachments on the Downloads tab must be download or opened and printed separately.
