4.1. This publication discusses a group of ABS statistical classifications that can be described collectively as economic sector classifications. Chapter 3 describes the SISCA, which is regarded as central amongst ABS sector classifications. The subject of this chapter is the other ABS classifications that can be classed as sector classifications. They are described as associated classifications because they are used in conjunction with the SISCA to provide classifications tailored to particular statistical requirements.

4.2. The classifications discussed in this chapter are as follows:

      Level of government
      BOP sector
      Direct investment enterprises/other enterprises
      Direct investors/other investors

4.3. As for the SISCA, the basic unit of classification for each of these classifications is the legal entity, which is the Australian counterpart of the SNA93 institutional unit. Each of the classifications can also be applied to enterprise units in the ABS maintained population and the ABN units in the ATO maintained population.
