Happy Birthday ABS

By johnboy - 8 December 2005 1

The Bureau of Statistics has put out a media release on the subject of their hundredth birthday today. ABC Online have coverage here. It seems the mokeys had to let their organ grinder (Peter Costello) cut the cake.

The ABS does have a brief wikipedia article which sadly doesn’t mention that 100 years ago there was but one Commonwealth Statistician. Were we so very worse off?

In the last hundred years they have bred like rabbits to now fill a large chunk of Belconnen. The vast volume of material they generate can be collected fresh and steaming from the best RSS feed in the whole of the Australian Government.

What’s Your opinion?
