  • About this Release

This research paper examines ways to improve the usefulness of current ABS electricity and gas supply industry statistics. While these statistics allow for the comparative analysis between and across different industries at the macro-economic level, users interested in detailed industry analysis have noted some limitations. Specifically, these limitations relate to the industry definitions used in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), and to the classification of secondary activities of business units within the ANZSIC framework.

This paper investigates these limitations, proposes methods to address them and proposes a methodology to develop an alternative industry view of electricity and gas supply activity. For illustrative purposes some preliminary estimates of key economic and financial data for 2003-04 are presented.
