Feature Article - International Trade in Services by State, 2002


This article is associated with International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (ABS cat. no. 5368.0) April 2003

Introduction

This article provides calendar year 2002 data for Australia's international trade in services by state.

Tables F1 and F2 show, for credits (exports) and debits (imports) respectively, Australia's international trade in services for 2002, classified by state, for 11 broad service types, with more detailed components also shown.

Interpretation of data

Service credits are classified by the state of provision, while services debits are classified by the state of consumption. Confidentiality constraints severely restrict the detail that can be provided for some states and territories. Care should be exercised in interpreting the data.

While the state allocation methods for transportation, travel and communication services are considered reasonable, especially for the analysis of movements in the services, the allocation for other services (about 25% of all trade in services) is primarily based on the location of the business reporting the information, which serves as a proxy for the state of provision/consumption of that service.

Transportation services are allocated by state using a combination of indicators including merchandise trade statistics by state and short-term overseas passenger arrivals and departures by state of clearance.

Overseas passenger departures data by the state where most time was spent are used to allocate the business and personal travel components of travel credits. Education-related travel credits are split using state data provided by the Department of Education, Science and Training. Travel debits are split using overseas departures data for resident departures by state.

For communication services, a domestic indicator for allocating the consumption of telecommunications and postal services by state in the national accounts is used to approximate the state allocation of the international trade in these services. It is assumed that each state's share of outgoing international calls and terminating connections for incoming international calls will be reasonably well aligned with total service consumption by state or territory.
