The ABS intends to release modelled, national ANZSIC class and state/territory ANZSIC subdivision level estimates for the manufacturing industry on an annual basis, in the absence of directly collected data. This will likely be the last edition of this publication with modelled manufacturing estimates expected to be released with the Australian Industry, 2010-11 (cat. no. 8155.0) publication.
The ABS is currently evaluating this methodology to see if it can be extended to satisfy other areas of unmet demand. The following areas are being considered, subject to rigorous evaluation:
- national ANZSIC class and state/territory ANZSIC subdivision level estimates for other industries
- additional data items such as profit measures.
