INNOVATION IN AUSTRALIAN BUSINESS - DETAIL
The proportion of innovation-active businesses was greater for each successive employment size range. The likelihood of businesses with more than 200 persons employed being innovation-active was more than double that of businesses with 0-4 persons employed (74% and 36% respectively).
During 2009-10, innovative activity was reported by more than half of all businesses in the Wholesale trade (59%), Arts and recreation services (56%) and Manufacturing (51%) industries. Businesses in the Transport, postal and warehousing industry, at 22%, were least likely to be innovation-active in 2009-10. Almost a third of businesses in the Agriculture, forestry and fishing industry reported innovative activity.
