The Economic Activity Survey

The main source of Manufacturing Industry statistics is the ABS's annual Economic Activity Survey (EAS). The EAS directly collects information about the operation and financial performance of all businesses in the public trading and private employing sectors of the Australian economy. Administrative by-product data from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) are also incorporated with the directly collected survey data, thereby improving the coverage and quality of the data without a corresponding increase in provider load. The results from this collection are published in Australian Industry, (cat. no. 8155.0).

For most industry divisions and subdivisions (as specified in the Australian and New Zealand Industrial Classification (ANZSIC), 2006 edition) including Manufacturing, estimates of income; expenses; industry value added; operating profit before tax; capital expenditure; and selected components of these aggregates and derivations are published at the national level. State/territory estimates of income, employment, and wages and salaries, at the division level are also included.
