STATE AND TERRITORY ESTIMATES

Table 3.1 presents estimates of wages and salaries and sales and services income by industry, and by state and territory.

The graphic below illustrates each state or territory's share of wages and salaries and sales and services income, relative to Total selected industries in 2006-07. The distribution of wages and salaries and sales and service income is similar across states and territories, although Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory contribute more to sales and service income than to wages and salaries.

When measured by share of sales and services income, five different industries predominated in the various jurisdictions. Manufacturing was the largest of the selected industries in 2006-07 in four states (Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania).

Western Australia's largest source of sales and services income was Mining, followed closely by Manufacturing. In the Northern Territory Construction predominated this measure. Retail trade was the major source of sales and services income in the Australian Capital Territory.

In terms of wages and salaries, three industries predominated in the various jurisdictions.
