OTHER LEISURE INDUSTRIES




MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY SURVEY

The ACLC Industry Classification includes the classes 341 for Sports and physical recreation goods manufacturing, and 481 for Other culture and leisure goods manufacturing. It would be ideal for data to be separately available for both classes. However, the Manufacturing Industry Survey uses ANZSIC to classify industry. The only ANZSIC class which corresponds closely in scope to ACLC classes 341 and 481 is 2942 Toy and sporting good manufacturing. The scope of this ANZSIC class is wholly contained within, but much narrower than, the combined scope of the two ACLC classes.


In 2000-01, the total income of toy and sporting good manufacturers was $303.7m of which 90.2% ($273.9m) came from sales of goods manufactured by the business. Total expenses came to $273.2m. Of this figure, 55.0% ($150.3m) went on purchases while labour costs accounted for a further 23.2% ($63.3m). The contribution of wages and salaries to labour costs was $55.0m (86.9%).


At the end of June 2001, there were 2,386 persons employed by toy and sporting good manufacturers.


For the 2000-01 and subsequent Manufacturing Industry Surveys, the business unit from which data is collected, and for which industry is classified, is the management unit. However, for earlier Manufacturing Industry Surveys the relevant unit was the establishment. Although, for the majority of businesses, these units will be one and the same, larger businesses may consist of one management unit but several establishments. As a result of the change in collection methodology, the data for 2000-01 is not comparable with data from earlier surveys. However, the data from the earlier surveys are comparable with each other.


Because of the design of the establishment-based surveys, only limited data is available at the individual ANZSIC class level (e.g. Class 2942) as can be seen in table 13.3. For the years 1997-98 to 1999-2000, the available data items are employment, sales of goods manufactured by the business, wages and salaries, and purchases. All were at their highest level in 1997-98 before falling in 1998-99 and then partially recovering in 1999-2000.
