ESTIMATES OF COST BY OUTPUT AND COMPONENT, 2002-03 ($’000)
(a) The change to the program structure between Prices and Labour Statistics in 2001-02 has resulted in an increase in allocated costs for Prices and a decrease in allocated costs for Labour Statistics. Rural and Regional Statistics is a new category this year - last year this was included with State and Territorial Statistical Services. With business statistics re-engineering in the ABS some functions such as forms handling, which were previously undertaken by individual programs, are now undertaken under the one program - Economic Statistics Data Centre. Business Income Tax Data was included as part of SPEED output in 2001-02, other components of SPEED are now reported under Economic Statistics Group Support. People Management includes some components which were reported under Financial Resources last year. In 2002-03 there has been some structural changes between Social Conditions Statistics and Health and Community Statistics, and the inclusion of new budgetary units in Social Conditions Statistics.
(b) The cost of the Census of Population and Housing component varies so widely over the five-yearly census cycle that it distorts the percentages applying to other statistical components. Accordingly, the full cost of the Census of Population and Housing has been excluded from the calculation of percentages.
(c) The majority of costs of this component were directly charged to other programs and are not included here.
(d) Includes the impact of corporately managed expense items.
