Submissions sought information on the provider burden placed on gas producers selected in the natural gas sample.

The ABS takes the issue of provider burden very seriously, as the co-operation and goodwill of providers is essential to producing high quality statistical outputs. Significant effort is undertaken to ensure provider burden is minimised at both individual business and industry levels. ABS survey forms for this price index will be developed in consultation with sampled gas producers. Where possible, the ABS will utilise appropriate data that is already reported to the ABS for other purposes.
