Service industries

INTRODUCTION

This chapter presents an overview and a range of statistical information for selected service industries.

Services-producing industries can be defined as industries other than goods-producing industries (Agriculture, forestry and fishing; Mining; Manufacturing; and Construction). The industry, Electricity, gas, water and waste services, can be viewed as both a goods-producing and services-producing industry, as it includes producers, wholesalers, retailers and distributors. Data on the industry are included in Selected service industries in this chapter.

The service industries covered in detail in this chapter are: Electricity, gas, water and waste services; Wholesale trade; Retail trade; Information media and telecommunications; Rental, hiring and real estate services; Professional, scientific and technical services; Administrative and support services; Public administration and safety; Education and training; Health care and social assistance; Arts and recreation services; and Other services.

The service industries Transport, postal and warehousing; Accommodation and food services; and Financial and insurance services are not included in detail in this chapter. Data on activities associated with these industries can be found in SERVICES INDUSTRIES OVERVIEW and in chapters 23 TOURISM, 24 TRANSPORT and 27 FINANCIAL SYSTEM.

The previous edition of Year Book Australia included detailed information on the following service industries: Museums; Legal services; Cafes, restaurants and catering services; Digital game development services; performing arts; Accommodation services; and Television, film and video production and post-production services. The data for these industries were in respect of 2006–07 or 2007–08.
