NOTES


INTRODUCTION

This release presents statistics on Research and Experimental Development (R&D) undertaken by Australian government and private non-profit organisations in respect of the financial year ended 30 June 2009. These statistics, as well as time series data, are also available in spreadsheet format (data cubes); see the Downloads page for this issue (cat. no. 8109.0) on the ABS website <www.abs.gov.au>.

Users should refer to the Explanatory and Technical Notes for further contextual information when interpreting the results.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

For the first time, field of research and socio-economic objective data presented in this issue have been collected and compiled based on the Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC), 2008 (cat. no. 1297.0). Previous issues used the Australian Standard Research Classification (ASRC).

Previous cycle estimates have not been recompiled using the new classification. As such, field of research and socio-economic objective tables present current cycle data only and on an ANZSRC basis. However, previous cycle data are available in the data cubes on an ASRC basis.


DATA QUALITY

When interpreting the results in this release, it is important to take into account factors that may affect the reliability of estimates. These factors are described in the Non-sampling error section of the Technical Note.

This release includes revised data for the 2006-07 reference period. Refer to the Revisions section of the Technical Note for further detail.
