This chapter presents information about persons employed in a cultural industry, as classified by the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) 2006 (Revision 1.0) (cat. no. 1292.0) for their main job. The cultural industries were chosen by selecting those ANZSIC codes with a major concordance to the Industry Classification of the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications (ACLC) (Second Edition) (cat. no. 4902.0).

The total number of persons employed in a cultural industry for their main job in the week prior to the 2011 Census was 358,162. This was 3.6% of all employed people.
