Hide details for Segment 8: Key National IndicatorsSegment 8: Key National Indicators

Transcript:
Start at the ABS home page. Note the quick links on the left hand navigation menu to access main economic indicators. If you need the latest CPI, Labour Force and National Accounts data, you can access them from here under National Statistics. A good starting point is Key National Indicators.
Key National Indicators present summary tables and graphs on the latest economic and social measures including GDP, CPI, Unemployment and Average Weekly Earnings. The link opens in the Summary tab. You will find tables of key economics and social indicators, and links to the full publication sources of this summary data. Note the summary data includes the latest figures for each indicator, as well as the percentage change from the previous quarter and the percentage change from the corresponding period last year.
Summary tables are a very useful resource for your class as they are easy to find and provide a quick snapshot of the latest key national data. You can switch to 'Graphs' for the same information in graphical form. Similarly, you can access links to source publications from this page. For example, click on the 'Labour Force' hyperlink and then open the publication Labour Force, Australia (cat # 6202.0). As with all ABS publications, it will open on the Summary page.
For more detail go to the Download tab and download the full publication in PDF format or open one of the Excel tables if you’re after a particular dataset. If you would like to view the Glossary, click on the Explanatory Notes tab. In most ABS publications, this is where you will find a brief introduction of the publication as well as a glossary of terms.

Includes: Finding Key National Indicators on the ABS website and a demonstration of how to access source publications.
