PERSONAL AND OTHER SERVICES

Definition and scope

The Personal and other services industry includes all units mainly engaged in providing personal services.


ANZSIC93 Division Q, Personal and other services, consists of three sub-divisions:

  • Personal services (sub-division 95)
  • Other services (sub-division 96)
  • Private households employing staff (sub-division 97).


Summary of GSP(P) sources and methods

The methodology for Personal and other services uses an output indicator approach to compile state by industry GVA estimates. Personal and other services are produced by both public and private sectors, consequently, the output indicators are derived as the sum of public and private output. An output indicator method is derived for both the public and private sectors using the price deflation method.


Public sector current price data are sourced from the ABS GFS. A deflator is derived using wage prices from the ABS Labour Price Index, and materials prices taken from the PPI and Import Price Index, Australia (cat. no. 6414.0). These current price and deflator estimates are used to construct a volume indicator for the public sector.


Private sector current price estimates by state are sourced from QBIS. Prior to QBIS the movements in the national current price private sector turnover are used to backcast the state QBIS estimates. Private sector deflators are constructed using various components of the ABS CPI by capital city, and HFCE implicit price deflators by state. The output volume estimates are then used to derive volume estimates for the private sector.


The state output indicators are used to derive volume measures of GVA for Personal and other services. The state volume GVAs are then benchmarked to the annual national industry volume GVA.
