DATA USED IN THE CALCULATION OF THE EXPERIMENTAL ESTIMATES
The experimental estimates presented in this publication were obtained using a combination of data directly collected in the EAS and BAS data. Modelling techniques were applied to combine these two data sources in order to produce the experimental estimates, as described in Chapter 2.
The EAS uses a sample of businesses, rather than full enumeration (i.e. a census) and is subject to sampling error. The resultant estimates obtained from the regression model may be different if survey information were available for all businesses. The experimental estimates presented in this paper therefore have an associated sampling error.
The experimental estimates also have additional associated sampling error as a result of constraining them to aggregate to national ANZSIC subdivision estimates obtained from the EAS and published in Australian Industry, 2009-10 (cat. no. 8155.0).
