This publication contains the supply-use tables for 2016–17. The data in this release is consistent with the 2017-18 release of the Australian System of National Accounts (cat. no. 5204.0).
Supply-use tables are an integral and essential element of the ABS national accounts. They are building blocks for the Australian System of National Accounts as they are used to ensure GDP is balanced for all three approaches (production, expenditure and income) and provide the annual benchmarks (levels) from which the quarterly estimates are compiled. They provide detailed information about the supply and use of products in the Australian economy, and the structure of and interrelationships between Australian industries.
The supply-use time series from 1994-95 to 2016-17 are available through the ABS.Stat website <http://stat.data.abs.gov.au/>
To mark the first release of the supply-use tables, a feature article highlighting how these tables can be utilised to analyse the changing structure of Australia's economy is available on the website.
For more information on the supply-use tables, their relationship to the Australian national accounts and their compilation, please see the Frequently Asked Questions and Explanatory Notes.
