Business use of IT
Data from the ABS 2005-06 Business Use of Information Technology Survey are scheduled for release in December 2007. The following paragraphs therefore refer to the 2004-05 survey.
The sample design for the 2004-05 Business Use of Information Technology Survey combines stratification for the three smaller states and territories. This means that data for these regions are less reliable than those for the larger states and users should make comparisons between regions or time periods for these states and territories with caution.
