ABOUT THIS RELEASE
The 1983 edition of the Australian Standard Industrial Classification (ASIC) has been prepared by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) for use in the collection, compilation and publication of its statistics.
Volume 1 of the ASIC contains the detailed classification as well as explanatory material on the principles of the classification, the units to be classified and the methods to be used in classifying them. Each ASIC class in Volume 1 is defined in terms of a specified range of economic activities designated as primary to it - hence the term 'primary activities'.
This volume, the Alphabetic Index of Primary Activities, lists in alphabetic order the primary activities contained in Volume 1 and shows for each the four digit code of the class to which it is primary.
In preparing this volume, the aim has been to make the alphabetic list of primary activities as comprehensive and useful a guide to the detailed classification in Volume 1 as possible.
This publication has been converted from older electronic formats and does not necessarily have the same appearance and functionality as later releases.
