Commonwealth Bureau of Census and Statistics, Canberra Official Year Book of the Commonwealth of Australia

    Abstract

    THIS useful year-book may almost be regarded as a model of arrangement and condensation. The need for economy still restricts its growth and precludes the inclusion of the special articles for which earlier issues were noted. The essential statistical matter, however, has not suffered curtailment. A special index refers to longer articles in former issues. In this issue the vital statistics of the 1933 census have been included and analysed. Agricultural, pastoral and mining activities are fully treated and made more valuable by the inclusion of many comparative statistics for other countries. Full attention is paid to labour, wages and public finance, while an appendix gives the history of the financial crisis in Australia. A list of useful books on Australia is added.
