DEVELOPMENT OF SERVICE INDUSTRY SURVEYS
The ABS is planning to conduct surveys on Nursing homes, Aged care, Child care, Residential care, and Non-residential care in respect of the 2008-09 financial year. The Goods and Services National Statistics Centre (G & S-NSC) will commence consultation with relevant stakeholders in late 2007 and continue until about mid 2008.
The aim of stakeholder consultation is to develop a common understanding between the ABS and key clients of the purpose of each survey and the survey requirements relative to the purpose - eg: identify and prioritise the content, accuracy, scope; and significant issues that could impact on the survey development, implementation or output.
For the purpose of identifying relevant stakeholders for consultations in the broad development phase, the G & S -NSC will soon commence contacting those organisations that made relevant submissions to the 2005 Service Industry Survey Forward Work Program review.
If you did not make a relevant submission to the review but would still like to be included in the development of any of these surveys or for further information contact Melanie Taylor, Director, G & S -NSC on (02) 6252 7495, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
