Do you know how many businesses operate in your state?
The ABS counts the number of businesses operating in the Australian economy, including rates of business entries and exits and business survival. These data are sourced from the ABS Business Register. They show the number of operating businesses by employment size at the end of June in each financial year and only include businesses which actively traded in goods or services during the reference period. Due to changes in scope, these counts are not directly comparable to previous data releases.
More detailed counts are available from the ABS website by industry, main state and territory, type of legal organisation, institutional sector, employment size ranges and annual turnover size ranges.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
