The ABS electronic product Measures of a Knowledge-based Economy and Society, Australia published in September 2003 presents indicators for the three core dimensions of the KBE/S framework. Many indicators have since been updated as new source data became available.

Innovation and entrepreneurship dimension indicators have been updated with 2002-03 data from the various research and development publications (cat. no's 8104.0, 8109.0 and 8112.0).

ICT dimension indicators have also been updated recently with data from the Internet activity survey and the household use of information technology survey.

The human capital dimension indicators are expected to be updated in early 2005.
