Concordance, 1998 SISCA to 1987 SISCA

Interpretation of this concordance

Only two of the 1998 SISCA sectors can be derived exactly from the 1987 SISCA:

  • the 1998 households sector is equal to the 1987 households subsectors 4.1 and 4.2
  • the 1998 NPISH sector is equal to the 1987 subsector of the same name (4.3).

The 1998 financial corporations sector includes financial auxiliaries and CBAs which, in the 1987 classification, were included in the corporate trading enterprises and general government sectors respectively. For this reason, neither the 1998 financial corporations sector nor the 1998 general government sector can be mapped exactly from the 1987 classification, which did not identify CBAs separately.

The 1987 sector 5, non-resident enterprises in Australia, represents only part of the 1998 sector 6, ROW, which includes non-resident enterprises outside Australia that engage in transactions with Australian residents, or have financial claims with Australian residents. Of the 1998 SISCA subsectors, only subsector 2.1.1, RBA, has an equivalent in the 1987 SISCA.

This is not a direct alignment. The ROW sector includes non-resident units located outside Australia as well as non-resident units located in Australia.
