To assess the rate, type and impact of innovation in Australian industries.

The ABS has conducted Innovation surveys in respect of 1993-94 and 1996-97. The surveys are based on a stratified random sample of businesses from the ABS Register of Businesses.

The 1996-97 survey was restricted to the manufacturing industry and comprised approximately 6,000 businesses.

Data are collected by mail questionnaire.
