Australian Social Trends (AST) podcasts bring you short, easy listening highlights from the Australian Bureau of Statistics' latest release of the AST publication. Each quarterly release of AST contains several in depth articles, which cover many broad areas of social concern such as population, health, work and housing just to name a few. We aim to do this in an interesting and easy to understand way. Other aims of AST are to address current and perennial social concerns and to provide answers to key social questions. Each podcast will focus in upon the highlights from a different article.
