Providing an ageing focus on 2001 Census data, this publication will be a useful resource for agencies with ageing policy responsibilities, researchers and the Australian community generally. While a major focus is on the number and characteristics of older Australians, i.e. persons aged 65 years and over, it also explores the ageing process in Australia by examining other age cohorts including mature age workers and the very old as well as examining trends over time by comparing with data from previous Censuses. Topics covered include population structure, geographic distribution, mobility, indigenous status, birthplace and ancestry, language, religion, families and households, type of housing, housing costs, labour force participation, hours worked, income, transport, education, and use of computers and the internet. In each chapter, data are presented in tabular, graphic and textual form, mainly at a national level, with a limited number of tables and maps at a more detailed geographic level.
