EXPLANATORY NOTES


INTRODUCTION

1 This publication, Alternative View of Electricity and Gas Supply Activity in Australia, 2006-07 to 2007-2008 (cat. no. 4647.0), presents statistics on the supply of electricity and gas, based on the alternative view methodology defined in Research Paper: Developing an Alternative View of Electricity and Gas Supply Activity in Australia (cat. no. 4647.0.55.001).

2 The industries used to compile this alternative view, as specified in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) (cat. no. 1292.0), 2006 edition ('ANZSIC06'), comprise:

  • Electricity supply (in ANZSIC Division D Electricity, gas, water and waste services, Subdivision 26), which relates to the generation, transmission or distribution of electricity, and the on selling of electricity via power distribution systems operated by others.
  • Gas supply (in ANZSIC Division D Electricity, gas, water and waste services, Subdivision 27), which relates to the distribution of gas, such as natural gas or liquefied petroleum gas, through mains systems.
  • Oil and Gas Extraction (in ANZSIC Division B Mining, Class 0700), which relates to the extraction of natural gas, crude oil or condensate from gas and oil deposits.
  • Pipeline Transport (in ANZSIC Division I Transport, Postal and Warehousing, Class 5021), which relates to the transportation of natural gas, oil or other materials via pipelines.

3 For the "Oil and Gas Extraction" and "Pipeline Transport" industry classes, only those businesses whose predominant activity was natural gas related were included in the sample survey coverage.

4 The data source used to produce the alternative view estimates was Australian Industry, 2007-08 (cat. no. 8155.0)(see both the publication, and the attached data cubes, which contain the data from the 2007-08 Energy Supply Survey).

5 For information on scope and coverage, survey sample details, statistical units used, reference period and data reliability, please see the Explanatory notes of Australian Industry, 2007-08 (cat. no. 8155.0).
