    NAME OF ORGANISATION
    Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)

    OVERVIEW
    The survey collected information about the Year 2000 problem and the reactions of Australian business to that issue. It helped to determine the Year 2000 status of Australian business at the end of June 1999. The scope of the survey was all private sector businesses in all industries, excluding agriculture, and all public sector businesses in the electricity, gas and water supply industries. The survey excluded those businesses which were not employing. The main output was the proportion of businesses taking action on the Year 2000 problem at industry, state and business size levels.

    PURPOSE
    The purpose of the survey was to provide some benchmark data on the status of Year 2000 preparedness and activity within Australian business as at June 1999. This enabled identification of areas which were lagging in becoming prepared and may have been at risk of being affected by the Year 2000 problem.

    SCOPE
    All private sector employing businesses on the Business Register in the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) 1993, divisions B to Q but excluding division M. All public sector employing business on the Business Register in ANZSIC division D.
