Business demography information provides a relatively broad picture of trends associated with business growth or decline. ABS business demography statistics focus on measuring changes in the counts and characteristics of different types of businesses and changes in the demographics of business operators. While the ABS does not have information to profile a competitor, it is possible to look at competitors within a particular geographic area or in a particular industry.
The Business Demography @ a Glance page provides information on the latest developments in business demography, links to relevant releases and resources to assist in using and interpreting business demography statistics.
