Video Transcript Yearbook Australia
Year Book Australia is the principal reference work produced by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. The Yearbook series provides a detailed statistical overview of economic and social conditions in Australia. It also contains information about Australia’s geography and climate, government, international relations, defence, education, health and welfare support systems. This is a broad-ranging publication that is a rich reference for projects and classroom activities across the curriculum.
Find Australian Yearbooks from the left-hand navigation menu of the ABS homepage. This will take you the entry page of the full suite of Australian Yearbook products. Select 'Yearbook Australia' and you'll be taken to the latest release. All feature articles and Media Releases can be found under the Summary tab on the left hand menu. You may choose to view articles on the web or download a free PDF copy from the Downloads tab.
Yearbooks can also be purchased in hard copy as a great addition to your school library. Did you know that you can access on-line issues of Australian Yearbooks dating back to 1908? Simply click on the Past & Future releases tab to select the Yearbook you want to view.
