This survey aims to measure the value of inventories and sales for private businesses in Australia.


The scope of the survey excludes private households and public sector business units (i.e. all departments, authorities and other organisations owned and/or controlled by the Commonwealth Government, State and local governments). Primary producer marketing boards are classified as public sector and are also excluded. In addition, non-employers are not included in the survey.

Data are collected by mail questionnaire in a quarterly survey of private businesses, including businesses in the energy industry.
