ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication presents estimates of the economic and financial performance of Australian industry for 2010-11. These data are compiled from the ABS Economic Activity Survey (EAS) and from Business Activity Statement (BAS) data reported to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).
The estimates in this publication are based on the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 edition (cat. no. 1292.0).
OFF-JUNE YEAR REPORTING IN EAS
The 2010-11 EAS has a reference period ending 30 June 2011 and the majority of businesses report for this reference period. In some industries though, a substantial proportion report for a different reference period, for example the reference period ending 31 May 2011. "Off-June year reporting" is more prevalent in industries with a high degree of foreign ownership, such as Mining and Manufacturing.
Experimental estimates on the impacts of Off-June year reporting have been released in Experimental Estimates for Australian Industry adjusted for Off-June Year reporting, 2008-09 and 2009-10 (cat. no. 8169.0). Estimates for 2010-11 will be released later in 2012.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
For the first time experimental estimates for Subdivision 64 Auxiliary finance and insurance services are released as a two year time series. These estimates are available as an appendix to this publication. However, they are not included in aggregates for Total selected industries.
Finer level estimates for the Australian manufacturing industry for 2010-11 will be released in July 2012 as a data cube on the web page for Australian Industry (cat. no. 8155.0). They were previously released in Experimental Estimates for the Manufacturing Industry, 2009-10 (cat. no. 8159.0).
CHANGES IN NEXT ISSUE
It is expected that the next issue of Australian Industry will include estimates for ANZSIC Subdivision 64 Auxiliary Finance and Insurance Services in the tables presented in Chapters 1 to 3, rather than in an Appendix.
