To provide a systematic record of Australia's transactions with the rest of the world, including international transactions for the energy sector (specifically coal, coke and briquettes, and other mineral fuels) and Australia's stock of foreign financial assets and liabilities.


The ABS conducts a number of surveys of businesses, individuals and organisations with international transactions and uses a variety of administrative by-product records in the compilation of BOP and IIP statistics.

Method of collection

Mail questionnaires. ABS and other collections that are used in estimating the energy-related components of the BOP and IIP statistics include the:

  • International Merchandise Trade Statistics Collection which supplies data on a wide range of energy products exported from and imported into Australia
  • Survey of International Trade in Services
  • Survey of International Investment which collects data on financial stocks and transactions

    Both surveys are conducted as a sample survey covering all Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification Subdivisions.

    Data detail

  • Current account, includes energy products exported abroad
  • Seasonally adjusted and trend estimates for current account aggregates
  • Capital account
  • Financial account (includes official reserve assets)

    IIP statistics about transactions and end of period levels on foreign assets and liabilities for the Australian energy industry are available.
