Contents >> Preface


The 2002 edition of the Standard Economic Sector Classifications of Australia (SESCA) (cat. no. 1218.0) replaces the 1998 version of the same publication.

This publication describes the Standard Institutional Sector Classification of Australia (SISCA) 1998 and other economic sector classifications which are normally used in conjunction with it. These classifications have not been revised since the previous edition of SESCA (cat. no. 1218.0) published in 1998, but the publication has been updated because the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) has revised the model used to create economic statistical units. These units are classified according to the suite of economic classifications described in this publication.

The classifications are shown in detail in Appendix 1, while Appendix 7 shows concordances between the revised institutional sector classification and other classifications.

The classifications described in this publication are used in the compilation and publication of national accounts, government finance and international accounts statistics as well as other component economic indicators.
