What is CData? And what could a dentist use CData for?

CData Online is a new product recently released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics and it is designed to manage Census data. It is a free service which allows you to create and customise your own tables, map your data and view it in a variety of graphs.

Once you graduate from Uni you are most likely to end up in a private practice.
Combined with the National survey of adult oral health 2004-06 , CData could help you create a detailed community profile of the area where you will set up your surgery. Could be a powerful tool to work out where wealthy people with bad teeth live ;-)

On a more serious note, ABS is now offering free CDATA information sessions at the ABS office in Sydney on the following dates:

Tuesday 2 December 2008 10am and 2pm
Thursday 18 December 2008 10am and 2pm
Thursday 15 January 2009 10am and 2pm

Each of these sessions will run for approximately 1 1/4 hours. If you would like to attend, please contact Christene Squires at the Australian Bureau of Statistics email or telephone (02) 9268 4569.
