This article provides an update on digital activity in Australia in 2021-22. These experimental estimates incorporate data from the most recent 2021-22 supply-use tables, which have resulted in revisions to previously published data. For further information regarding revisions, see Improved estimates of the annual national accounts: Results of the 2023 historical revisions and Improved annual National Accounts estimates: Results of the implementation of the 2021-22 benchmarks.
The ABS measures digital activity in Australia as the production of:
- Digital enabling infrastructure, such as computer hardware, software, telecommunications equipment and support services that form and facilitate the use of computer networks.
- Digital media, which covers digital audio, video and advertisement broadcasting services that can be created, accessed, stored or viewed on digital devices.
- E-commerce, which incorporates retail and wholesale services and margins from digitally ordered or platform enabled online transactions.
