ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication contains statistics of taxation revenue collected by all levels of government in Australia for the periods 2002–03 to 2011–12. The taxation revenue statistics presented are for the general government sector and include taxes received from public corporations (i.e. government owned/controlled corporations).
Renewable Energy Certificates issued under the Commonwealth Renewable Energy Target have been included in this issue, with data backcast in the time series. Separate data series for emission reduction schemes are not available.
Time series of these data are available on the ABS website.
This publication contains a section on adjusted measures of government revenue, which provides analytical measures designed to facilitate an understanding of the level of government at which revenue is used rather than collected.
In this publication, the term 'state' includes the two territories. Therefore, 'state' refers to 'state and territories' and 'state and local' refers to 'state, territories and local'.
