INTRODUCTION

This chapter presents an overview of service industries and provides a range of statistical information for a selection of service industries, with a focus on those that have recently been surveyed as part of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) rotating program of service industries collections.

For the purposes of this chapter, service industries have been defined as all industries other than goods-producing industries (agriculture, forestry and fishing; mining; manufacturing; electricity, gas and water; and construction). As such, service industries encompasses the following industries: wholesale trade; retail trade; accommodation, cafes and restaurants; transport and storage; communication services; finance and insurance; property and business services; government administration and defence; education; health and community services; cultural and recreational services; and personal and other services.

In 2003-04 the service industries' share of the total production of goods and services in the Australian economy (gross domestic product) was 56%.
