ECONOMIC ACTIVITY SURVEY - HELP PAGE
Welcome to online help for the Economic Activity Survey 2011-12.
Online help contains information designed to help businesses understand and complete the questions asked on the survey forms. In these pages, as in the survey forms, examples are used extensively to illustrate what the questions may mean for particular industries or groups of industries. These examples should not be taken as an exhaustive or exclusive list.
For common questions about participation in ABS business surveys, please see Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). For information about what to do if the business ceased operating before or during the 2011-12 period, please refer to Business changes.
If your question about the Economic Activity Survey is not answered on these pages, or in the information provided on your form, you can also call the freecall (excluding mobile phones) phone number printed on the front of the form.
A number of different form variations are used to collect information for the Economic Activity Survey based on the industries or groups of industries to which businesses are classified by ABS. An information page is provided for each form variation according to the label at the top right corner of the front page of the form (e.g. AIC12CCS).
To access the Help Page for the form which was sent to your business, please refer to one of the following:
If your business has been sent a form corresponding to an industry in which it does not operate, please complete the form anyway. (The main points of difference between the form variations are the examples of what to include or exclude, but the main concepts behind the questions are common to all form variations.)
