    Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS)


      This survey collects data for use in the Australian National Accounts. It is very small and only includes about 30 respondents. They provide data for use in calculating chain volume measures of gross value added for industries. These sum to a production based estimate of GDP) which along with income and expenditure based estimates is used to derive the GDP measure published in the main national accounts publication "Australian National Accounts, National income, Expenditure and Product" (5206.0). Productivity estimates are also generated using this data.

      Mainly to collect output indicators from major public and private sector enterprises in industries that are out of scope of quarterly business surveys.

      The scope of All Industries Gross Value Added is all economic production which occurs in Australia. The coverage of this survey is quite small and only collects data from public and private sector enterprises that are not collected elsewhere within the ABS.


    Conceptual framework

      GDP is defined as the total market value of goods and services produced in Australia after deducting the cost of goods and services used up in the process of production (intermediate consumption) but before deducting consumption of fixed capital.. There are three ways of measuring GDP - expenditure, income and production. This survey is associated with the production approach and is used to collect data for calculating an industry based chain volume measure of gross value added. The term "Chain Volume Measure" simply means that the direct effect of price changes have been removed and that for each year quantity movements are weighted together using prices from the previous year and the subsequent estimates for each year are linked together.

    Main outputs
      Quarterly chain volume measures of gross value added for all ANZSIC divisions and selected ANZSIC subdivisions, from 1974-75 to the current quarter. Annual estimates of gross value added per hour worked for selected industries. Quarterly estimates of gross value added per hour worked for All Industries and for the Market Sector.

      the ANZSIC classification is used exclusively

    Other concepts (summary)
      As stated above refer to 5216.0

      Frequency comments


        Collection started in 1987-88 to fill a void in the scope of quarterly business surveys so that constant price estimates of GDP(P) could be compiled.


      Data availability comments
      The data collected are not disseminated in their own right, rather they are used to derive constant price estimates of gross product in the national accounts.
