ABOUT BUSINESS USE OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY STATISTICS
Key indicators of business use of IT include: Internet access; web presence; the use of broadband; and Internet commerce (i.e., the placing and receiving of orders via the Internet or web).
Scope changes associated with the adoption of the updated industry classification, Australian and New Zealand Standard Industry Classification, 2006 (ANZSIC06) for the 2006-07 BCS have affected comparability with data previously collected on the ANZSIC93 basis. The data presented here are not directly comparable to those released in earlier issues of this publication or releases from previous stand-alone surveys of IT use by Australian business. For more information about the impact of moving to ANZSIC06 on business use of IT statistics, please refer to the Appendix - Changes to Industry Classification: Comparability with previous outputs.
