ANNUAL MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY COLLECTION

The 2000-01 collection was a survey of approximately 9,500 manufacturing management units. All selected manufacturing management units were asked to provide data on employment, wages and salaries, detailed structural and performance data, value of sales for commodities produced, and whether their products were exported. This publication provides preliminary estimates of employment, wages and salaries, sales and service income, and industry value added (IVA). Information in respect of all the data items collected will be released in either Manufacturing Industry, Australia, 2000-01 (Cat. no. 8221.0), other Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) publications, or will be available on request and for a charge.


ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This is the first publication in this series to present data for manufacturing management units. In previous years, data related to manufacturing establishments. For more details, see the Appendix.

Since this is the first year that this publication contains data collected from management units, it is not possible to provide any specific guidance regarding the relationship between these results and the final estimates. However, such comparisons in previous years, for data collected from establishments, have shown that preliminary estimates are generally slightly higher than final estimates, typically by about 1%.


MANUFACTURING PUBLICATIONS

The 2000-01 final manufacturing industry publication Manufacturing Industry, Australia, 2000-01 (Cat. no. 8221.0) will be released in September 2002.

MAIN FEATURES


OVERVIEW

Sales and service income (see paragraphs 16 and 17 of the Explanatory Notes for the definition) for the year 2000-01 by manufacturing management units operating in Australia was $253,938m, which resulted in an industry value added (IVA) for the year of $74,640m. In current price terms, this represents a 6% increase in sales and service income from the $239,673m recorded for 1999-2000 and an increase of 5% in IVA. However, using volume measures to remove the effects of price changes (see paragraphs 21 and 22 of the Explanatory Notes), IVA increased by 1%. Manufacturing management units employed 985,700 persons at the end of June 2001 and paid $39,536m in wages and salaries in 2000-01.

EMPLOYMENT

Australian manufacturing employment increased between June 2000 and June 2001 (up 3% from 956,800 persons to 985,700 persons). The industry subdivision with the largest percentage increase in employment was Other manufacturing (up 9% or 4,600 persons). The other subdivisions to record increases were Machinery and equipment manufacturing (up 7% or 14,200 persons), Metal product manufacturing (up 5% or 7,600 persons), Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing (up 4% or 7,900 persons) and Wood and paper product manufacturing (up 3% or 1,800 persons). Employment in the Textile, clothing, footwear and leather manufacturing, Petroleum, coal, chemical and associated product manufacturing and Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing subdivisions remained steady. The only industry subdivision to record a decrease was Printing, publishing and recorded media (down 8% or 7,800 persons).


SALES AND SERVICE INCOME

Sales and service income rose, in current price terms, by $14,264m to $253,938m for 2000-01. This represents a 6% increase on the $239,673m recorded for 1999-2000.

Seven of the nine manufacturing industry subdivisions recorded an increase in sales and service income between 1999-2000 and 2000-01. The largest percentage increases between 1999-2000 and 2000-01 were recorded by Petroleum, coal, chemical and associated product manufacturing and Other manufacturing (both up 11%), Metal product manufacturing (up 10%), Machinery and equipment manufacturing (up 9%) and Textile, clothing, footwear and leather manufacturing (up 7%). Printing, publishing and recorded media (down 9%) and Non-metallic mineral product manufacturing (down 3%) were the two industry subdivisions to record a fall in sales and service income. The largest dollar increase between 1999-2000 and 2000-01 was recorded by Machinery and equipment manufacturing (up $4,312m). Food, beverage and tobacco manufacturing ($56,080m) remained the largest contributor to total manufacturing sales and service income.


INDUSTRY VALUE ADDED

IVA rose, in current price terms, by $3,559m to $74,640m for 2000-01. This represents a 5% increase on the $71,081m recorded for 1999-2000.

The largest percentage increases were recorded by Metal product manufacturing (up 20%), Other manufacturing (up 19%) and Machinery and equipment manufacturing (up 14%). The largest percentage decrease was recorded by Printing, publishing and recorded media (down 12%) with this subdivision also recording a decrease using volume measures (down 11%). The largest percentage increases using volume measures were recorded by Metal product manufacturing, Machinery and equipment manufacturing and Other manufacturing (all up 6%).
