    NAME OF ORGANISATION
    Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)

    OVERVIEW
    The Services Industries section in Central Office is to undertake a survey in respect of 1995-6 to assist the Australian Non-profit Data Project (ANDP) in measuring the contribution of Non-profit Institutions (NPI's).

    The survey will be an official survey conducted under the Census & Statistics Act. The scope and coverage of the survey is Management Unit based and will involve a sample of those units flagged on the Business Register as being NPI's. The exception being 'Interest Groups' [ANZSIC Group 962] where a sample from all units will be taken [as it is expected that notionally all units will be NPI's].
