This publication presents summary counts of business characteristics of Australian businesses. Data include ANZSIC Division and Subdivision, Type of Legal Organisation (TOLO), Standard Institutional Sector Classification of Australia (SISCA), employment status and employment size ranges.
Data presented also identify whether businesses have operations in one or more states/territories, the number of states/territories businesses operate and in which states/territories businesses operate.
An ANZSIC Division breakdown for Australian states and territories is also provided. These tables are based on the state or territory of the main business address. Therefore, where a business operates in more than one state or territory, that business is categorised to the state or territory of the main business address.
Employment size ranges are non-employing, 0-19, 20-199 and 200+. The actual number of employees is not available.
The data presented in the tables have been confidentialised to ensure no individual business can be identified.
For information on scope and coverage, please refer to the explanatory notes.
