Information Paper: Revisions to Historical ANZSIC Industry Data, 2011 (cat. no. 6259.0) - released 25/02/11

This publication provides details of revisions to the concordance between the formerly used Australian Standard Industrial Classification (ASIC 1983) and ANZSIC 1993. This new concordance has been applied to historical labour force data, and newly revised employment by industry estimates for the period November 1984 to May 1994 have been published in Labour Force, Australia, Detailed, Quarterly, Feb 2011 (cat. no. 6291.0.55.003).

This new concordance remains largely the same as the one detailed in the previous issue of this publication. Amendments have only been made to the estimated employment ratio between 7 ASIC 1983 Industry Groups and their 18 attributable ANZSIC 1993 Groups. These amendments reinstate the proportions provided in the replacement 1994 issue of this publication as the 1996 revisions to these proportions have since been found to be inappropriate.

Motor Vehicle Census, Australia, 31 Mar 2010 (cat. no. 9309.0) - released 01/02/11

Data available at the following geographic levels: National; State and territory

This publication presents statistics relating to vehicles which were registered at 31 March 2010 with a motor vehicle registration authority. Motor vehicle registration statistics are compiled from data made available by various state and territory motor vehicle registration authorities and reflect the information as recorded in registration documents.

There were 16.1 million motor vehicles, including motor cycles, registered in Australia at 31 March 2010. This is 2.5% higher than the number of registrations from the 31 March 2009 Motor Vehicle Census, and an increase of 15.4% since the 2005 Motor Vehicle Census, when there were 13.9 million vehicles registered in Australia. The average annual growth over this five year period was 2.9%.

Motor cycles accounted for 4.1% of all vehicles registered in Australia at 31 March 2010, up from 3.0% in 2005. Between 31 March 2005 and 31 March 2010, motor cycle registrations increased by 56.5% and had the largest increase of any vehicle type. Increases in registrations over this five year period have been observed in all states and territories, with Western Australia recording the largest percentage increase (77.0%), followed by the Northern Territory (74.8%). The smallest percentage increase was in Victoria where registrations of motor cycles at 31 March 2010 were 45.4% above those recorded 5 years earlier.

Value of Principal Agricultural Commodities Produced, Australia, Preliminary, 2009–10 (cat. no. 7501.0) - released 21/02/11

Data available at the following geographic levels: National; State and territory

This publication contains preliminary estimates of the gross values of production for principal agricultural commodities for all states, territories and Australia for 2009–10. The final national and state estimates for 2009–10 will be released in Value of Agricultural Commodities Produced, Australia (cat. no. 7503.0) in May 2011 and regional estimates shortly thereafter.

In 2009–10, the preliminary estimate of the gross value of agricultural commodities produced was $39.5 billion, a decrease of 6% (or $2.4 billion) from the previous year. The value of crops decreased 7% to $21.1 billion, and livestock products decreased 9%, down to $5.7 billion. This was due to a significant decrease in the value of whole milk. Livestock slaughterings and other disposals decreased 1% to $12.7 billion, with decreases in the value of cattle and calves and poultry more than offsetting increases in the value of sheep and lambs, pigs and other livestock.
