    OVERVIEW

    Form 45: Purpose of this form is to identify possible in-scope units for inclusion in the Survey of International Trade in Services.

    Form 60: Purpose of this form is to update corporate structure information relating to units selected for inclusion in the September quarter International Investment frame on an annual basis.

    Form 61: Purpose of this form is to identify possible in-scope units for inclusion in the Survey of International Investment.

    Form 62: Purpose of this form is to benchmark those units in the unselected portion of the International Investment frame on a 3 year rotational basis.


    PURPOSE
    Maintain adequate collection frames to ensure the collection of data in the SII and SITS surveys.

    SCOPE


    It is not practical to give all economic entities in the Australian economy a chance of selection in the Survey of International Investment or Survey of International Trade in Services, since many will not have any international activity.

    Instead, the coverage of the surveys is all Australian enterprise groups which are known to have relevant international activity. This is defined in terms of frames created and managed by the IFAB Frames Management Unit.
