This release presents key indicators on the incidence of use of information technology and innovation in Australian business, as collected by the 2011-12 Business Characteristics Survey (BCS).


An important aim of the BCS is to release estimates for key indicators within 12 months of the reference date. While every effort has been made to ensure that the data included in this release are final, further quality assurance may result in some minor changes to estimates in subsequent releases. If this does occur, any relevant revisions to estimates will be appropriately annotated in future releases from the 2011-12 BCS as mentioned below.

Information about data quality is provided in the Quality Declaration and Explanatory Notes and must be taken into consideration when interpreting the statistics in this release.


There are two components to this release: summary information for IT and Innovation; and data cubes. The data cubes contain detailed tables for the data used in the tables, graphs and commentary included in the summary information sections.


More detailed and final estimates from the BCS will be released in Business Use of Information Technology (cat. no. 8129.0) on 22 August 2013 and Selected Characteristics of Australian Business (cat. no. 8167.0) on 19 September 2013.
