    OVERVIEW
    The collection is a survey of employing businesses classified to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industry Classification (ANZSIC) Class 7866 Cleaning Services.

    PURPOSE
    The changing structure of the cleaning services industry in Australia has meant that users require more regular statistics. In particular, the recent introduction of the one stop shop approach to property management services has seen some change in the structure of this, and other related industries. This survey assists in measuring the affect this change has had on the size and structure of the industry.

    SCOPE
    The scope of the collection was all businesses mainly engaged in providing window, building, telephone cleaning or similar cleaning services (except carpet cleaning or shampooing services, steam cleaning, or sand blasting of building exteriors), as defined by Class 7866 of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC).
