for the manufacturing industry in Western Australia from the 2001-02 Economic Activity Survey, compiled using new statistical infrastructure. Estimates for Western Australia at the industry subdivision level for 2001-02 were included in Manufacturing Industry, Australia, 2001-02 and 2002-03 (cat. no. 8221.0), which was released on 17 December 2004.
The Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) is used in the design of the Economic Activity Survey. The ANZSIC also provides the structure for presenting data about the manufacturing industry.
The ANZSIC consists of four levels of industry classification, to accommodate both broad analysis and fine dissection of statistical data about the Australian economy. The four levels constitute a hierarchy, Division being the broadest classification level, followed by Subdivision, Group and Class as increasingly detailed dissections.
Each division is identified by an alphabetical character. The division code for Manufacturing is C. Each subdivision is represented by a two digit code and each group by a three digit code. Each class is represented by a four digit code.
An example of the four levels for manufacturing and their codes is given below.
For definitions of the data variables, please see the Glossary from the Explanatory Notes Tab in Manufacturing Industry, Australia, 2001-02 and 2002-03 (cat. no. 8221.0) .
CHANGES SINCE THE PREVIOUS ISSUE
The new statistical infrastructure was described in Information Paper: Improvements in ABS Economic Statistics [Arising from The New Tax System](cat. no. 1372.0), released on 6 May 2002. In particular,
Effectively, a new statistical series has commenced with the 2001-02 collection. Hence, extreme caution should be exercised in any comparison with the previous release of these data, which related to 1996-97.
The regions for which data are presented are Statistical Divisions, as defined in the Australian Standard Geographical Classification (cat. no. 1216.0).
To facilitate the production of regional estimates, all manufacturing businesses which received ABS mail out questionnaires were also asked to provide key information in respect of all of their physical locations. The contribution of individual smaller businesses was mainly derived from their BIT data, and each such business was assumed to operate from only one location.
Employment estimates are not available for regions in Western Australia, due to methodological problems with deriving them from the taxation system data used.
Data at finer levels of industry or geographic detail may be available on request and for a charge. Please contact John Ridley, on (02) 9268 4541 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
COMPARABILITY WITH EARLIER RELEASES OF 2001-02 DATA
State and territory level data may be different from data for 2001-02 published in Manufacturing Industry, Australia, 2001-02 and 2002-03. This can occur because the estimates in this release
The regional data presented here might not add to the state totals for 2001-02 published in Manufacturing Industry, Australia, 2001-02 and 2002-03. This can occur because the estimates in this release
Similarly, regional data presented here might not add to the state totals in the industry class data presented elsewhere in this release, for the first two (of the four) reasons given above.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
