INTRODUCTION

This publication provides details of revisions to the concordance between the formerly used Australian Standard Industrial Classification (ASIC 1983) and ANZSIC 1993. It replaces the previous issue of this information paper (released 28 June 1996) in order to provide amendments to a small number of Industry Groups that were inappropriately revised in 1996. An improved concordance has now been applied to historical labour force estimates for the period November 1984 to May 1994. From February 2011, these revisions replace the historical time series data published in Labour Force, Detailed, Quarterly (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003).


CHANGES TO ASIC 1983 TO ANZSIC 1993 CONCORDANCE

This new concordance remains largely the same as the one detailed in the previous issue of this publication. Amendments have only been made to the estimated employment ratio between 7 ASIC 1983 Industry Groups and their 18 attributable ANZSIC 1993 Groups. These amendments reinstate the proportions provided in the replacement 1994 issue of this publication as the 1996 revisions to these proportions have since been found to be inappropriate.

The following table provides the amended proportions of employment between these 7 affected ASIC 1983 Groups and their corresponding ANZSIC 1993 Groups. These proportions replace those published in the previous issue.

Historical ASIC 1983 group estimates for the period November 1984 to May 1994 have been converted to the equivalent ANZSIC 1993 groups using the revised proportions and then converted again to the contemporary ANZSIC 2006 Classification.

Historical data at the ANZSIC 2006 Division, Subdivision, and Group level are now available by request for the period November 1984 to May 1994. In general, a charge is applied for providing unpublished information.

REVISIONS TO TIME SERIES SPREADSHEETS

The revised historical estimates of employment by ANZSIC 2006 Division and Subdivision will be published as of the February 2011 issue of Labour Force, Detailed, Quarterly (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003) in the following tables:
      Table 04. Employed persons by Industry - Trend, Seasonally adjusted, Original
      Table 05. Employed persons by State and Industry
      Table 06. Employed persons by Industry Subdivision and Sex
      Table 11. Employed persons by Actual hours worked, Industry and Sex

These revisions will mainly impact on the historical estimates of:
      Division I: Transport, Postal and Warehousing
      Division J: Information Media and Telecommunications.
Graph: Division I: Transport, Postal and Warehousing, Nov 1984 to Nov 2010, Employed Total, Revised and Published Trend

Graph: Division J: Information Media and Telecommunications, Nov 1984 to Nov 2010, Employed Total, Revised and Published Trend

Minor level changes will also be noticeable in the historical estimates of:
      Division E: Construction
      Division G: Retail Trade
      Division L: Rental, Hiring and Real Estate Services
      Division O: Public Administration and Safety
      Division S: Other Services.

No other Industry Divisions will be affected by these revisions, including Division A: Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing. Although the underlying Division A group level estimates have been revised, the aggregated division level estimate remains unchanged.
