ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication contains statistics of taxation revenue collected by all levels of government in Australia for the periods 1999-2000 to 2008-09. The taxation revenue statistics presented are for the general government sector and include taxes received from public corporations (i.e. government owned/controlled corporations).
Time series of these data are available on the ABS web site.
This publication contains an Appendix on adjusted measures of government revenue, which provides analytical measures designed to facilitate an understanding of the level of government at which revenue is used rather than collected.
In this publication, the term 'state' includes the two territories. Therefore, 'state' refers to 'state and territories' and 'state and local' refers to 'state, territories and local'.
