Construction had the highest number of business operators (384,000), followed by Agriculture Forestry and Fishing 212,000 (11%) and Professional, Scientific and Technical Services 199,000 (10%).

Male business operators were distributed in a similar way across these three industries, while female business operators were evenly distributed across five industry groups: Retail Trade (13%); Agriculture Forestry and Fishing (11%); Professional, Scientific and Technical Services (11%); Health Care and Social Assistance (10%); and Other Services (10%).

There were higher concentrations of business operators in the Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing (62%) and Construction (41%) industries. Conversely, there were lower concentrations of business operators across the Public Administration and Safety (1%) and Mining (2%) industries. These concentrations represent the business operator population as a proportion of the total business and non-business operator populations, for each industry.
