The three classifications provide common structures and definitions for culture and leisure industry, product and occupation data. As such, they are a useful guide for a wide variety of purposes relating to the analysis of cultural and leisure economic statistics. Specifically, the classifications can be used as a quick reference for practical definitions of key culture and leisure categories. They also provide information on classifications or structures used in the dissemination of the ABS’s culture and leisure statistics and summarise the culture and leisure components of three of the ABS’s standard classifications. Finally, researchers can use the classifications to aid their survey design and structure their research output.

The next three chapters provide the Industry Classification, Product Classification and Occupation Classification respectively. Each classification is divided into the following sections:

    • An introduction – provides background on the scope, structure and concepts of the classification.
    • A classification summary – provides major group of class headings to aid navigation. The summary of the ACLC Industry Classification provides a list of all groups and classes in the classification. Summaries of the ACLC Product and Occupation Classifications contain major group headings only.
    • A detailed classification – provides a description of each class.
Spreadsheets are also provided in the Downloads section. For each classification these provide:
    • An alphabetic index – lists significant elements of the classification alphabetically.
    • Correspondences – provides correspondences with the ABS's standard classifications.
For the Product Classification, there is a spreadsheet documenting the changes between ACLC 1998 (Edition 2) and ACLC 2014 (Edition 3).
