NEW OCCUPATION AND INDUSTRIAL CLASSIFICATIONS FOR AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
The Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 (cat 1292.0) was released in February 2006, and replaced ANZSIC 1993. A joint project between the ABS and Statistics New Zealand, the aim of the new classification is to create a more contemporary industrial classification system that identifies new and emerging industries.
Information Paper: ANZSIC 2006 Implementation, 2006 (cat. no. 1295.0), released in November 2005, outlines the development of ANZSIC 2006 and the expected timing for its use in economic collections such as the Australian National Accounts (ANA). The ANA will begin to be released on an ANZSIC 2006 basis in late 2009.
The Australian New Zealand Standard Classification of Occupations (ANZSCO) (cat. no. 1220.0) is expected to be released on July 2006. ANZSCO replaces the Australian Standard Classification of Occupations, Second Edition and the New Zealand Standard of Classification, 1999. The new publication will provide an integrated structure of occupations that is more up-to-date and relevant. Refer to Information Paper: Australian New Zealand Classification of Occupations, 2005 (cat. no. 1221.0) for further information.
