Contents >> Service Industries >> Service industries - overview

The service industries sector is defined as all industries other than goods producing industries (Agriculture, Mining, Manufacturing, Electricity, gas and water supply, and Construction). In terms of the 1993 edition of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), service industries cover Wholesale trade, Retail trade, Accommodation, cafes and restaurants, Transport and storage, Communication services, Finance and insurance, Property and business services, Government administration and defence, Education, Health and community services, Cultural and recreational services, and Personal and other services.

This chapter contains references to publications relating to most of the above industries except for transport, communication services, government, education, and health and community services, which are covered by other chapters in Statistics Tasmania.


The services industry sector is a major component of the Tasmanian economy. In 2003-04, over 55% of Tasmania's Gross State Product was derived from service industries and over 75% of the workforce were employed in service industries.
