CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Commencing with this issue, the pdf version of Research and Experimental Development, Government and Private Non-Profit Organisations, is no longer available.
Detailed data, including time series data, are available in spreadsheet format (data cubes); see the Downloads page for this issue.
Fields of research and socio-economic objective data presented in this issue have been collected using the Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC) at the division level (2 digit) only rather than group level (4 digit). As a result, production of outputs at the 4 digit level, previously available upon request, is no longer possible.
For more information on this classification please refer to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Research Classification (ANZSRC), 2008 (cat. no. 1297.0).
The Survey of Research and Experimental Development, Government and Private Non-Profit Organisations will be conducted on a biennial basis following this 2012-13 cycle. The next survey will be conducted for the 2014-15 financial year.
When interpreting the results in this release, it is important to take into account factors that may affect the reliability of estimates. These factors are described in the Non-Sampling Error section of the Technical Note.
Users are also advised to exercise caution if comparing estimates over time. Refer to the Revisions section of the Technical Note for further details.
