GENERAL LOCAL GOVERNMENT EXPENSES BY PURPOSE, 2009-10 and 2010-11
More financial and function data are published in Government Finance Statistics, Australia (cat. no. 5512.0).
The ABS conducts a quarterly survey of financial information, from a selected sample of councils each quarter. Data for the December quarter were due earlier this month and is currently being processed by the LGSU. Reminders for the next round of quarterly survey data will be despatched in March. Responses are required by 9 April 2013. Early attention to the survey forms enabling a timely return to the ABS will ensure that the financial activity of local government is accurately represented in Australia's National Accounts.
The ABS thanks councils for their cooperation in providing timely and high quality data for these collections. The information provided is used in making important policy decisions concerning the sector and it is important that accurate and timely information is returned by councils to build this data set.
VISITS TO DEPARTMENTS OF LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND GRANTS COMMISSIONS
Each year, the LGSU endeavours to meet with state/territory Grants Commissions or Departments of Local Government to review the recently completed annual collection and to commence preparations for the next cycle. These meetings are to be scheduled in accordance with the forward work program of the LGSU, and usually occur between March and June each year.
