These data are estimates of the number of persons whose main or principal source of income comes from their Own unincorporated business(es) for the financial years 2004-05 and 2005-06. The data includes estimates of:
the number of persons by sex;
the income those persons received from Own unincorporated business(es); and
the total income those persons received from all sources.
These data have been compiled from the Australian Taxation Office's Individual Income Tax Return Database and are part of the ABS' program to increase the range of regional data available to users of regional statistics, particularly through the use of administrative information from other government agencies.
These data are intended to provide insight about the economy of regions, and in particular regional income. The data are available for various levels of the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) such as Statistical Local Areas (SLA), Local Government Areas (LGA), Statistical Subdivisions (SSD) and Statistical Divisions (SD).
Data previously released in this series has been for the financial years 1996-97 to 2003-04. This is the final issue in this series. In future data will be provided for estimates of all persons receiving any income from Own unincorporated business, rather than being limited to those with a main source of income from Own unincorporated business, as in this current publication. To stay informed about future releases of data, please refer to the Noticeboard of the Regional theme page on the ABS website.
