    • This was the first ABS survey of Norfolk Island private sector businesses. As such, there are no comparative data.
    • At 30 June 2005 there were 339 private sector businesses operating on Norfolk Island. These businesses had total employment of 1,267 persons and generated $94.1m in income in 2004-05. The profit of these businesses in 2004-05 was $13.5m which represents an operating profit margin of 14.3% .
    • The industry data highlights the predominance of tourism-related businesses in the Norfolk Island economy. Those tourism-related businesses (ie retail, accommodation, restaurants, travel and tour operators, clubs, pubs and taverns) represent 71% of business income and 68% of private sector employment.



      This is the first release of results for the Norfolk Island Business Survey. The survey was undertaken on Norfolk Island by officers of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
