Copyright ã Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2000
1 This publication presents results in respect of the 1999-00 financial year from a census of employing organisations engaged in the operation of botanic gardens.
2 The scope of the botanic gardens census was:
3 The unit for which non-government sector statistics were reported in the census was the management unit. The management unit is the highest-level accounting unit within a business or organisation, having regard for industry homogeneity, for which accounts are maintained. In nearly all cases it coincides with the legal entity owning the business (i.e. company, partnership, trust, sole operator, etc.). In the case of large diversified businesses, however, there may be more than one management unit, each coinciding with a 'division' or 'line of business'. A division or line of business is recognised where separate and comprehensive accounts are compiled for it.
4 For government organisations, the statistical unit was defined to be those parts of the organisations responsible for providing botanic garden services.
5 Data contained in the tables in this publication relate to all employing organisations operating botanic gardens (see paragraph 2) during the year ended June 2000. Counts of businesses and organisations include only those that were operating at 30 June 2000.
RELIABILITY OF THE DATA
6 Because the census does not have a sample component, the data are not subject to sampling variability. However, other inaccuracies collectively referred to as non-sampling error may affect the data. These non-sampling errors may arise from a number of sources, including:
7 Every effort has been made to reduce non-sampling error to a minimum by careful design and testing of questionnaires, efficient operating procedures and systems, and appropriate methodology.
8 ABS publications draw extensively on information provided freely by individuals, businesses, governments and other organisations. Their continued cooperation is very much appreciated; without it, the wide range of statistics published by the ABS would not be available. Information received by the ABS is treated in strict confidence as required by the Census and Statistics Act 1905.
