Table 3.1 presents a time series for selected items for all states and the Northern Territory, from 2001-02 to 2005-06. The data relate to the industry designated as 'Selected mining', that is, ANZSIC subdivisions 11-14 (Coal mining, Oil and gas extraction, Metal ore mining and Other mining) only. ANZSIC subdivision 15 (Services to mining) is excluded from the data in this table, because the design of the survey does not support production of data at the state and territory level for this industry. See Explanatory Notes paragraphs 35 to 37 for an outline of the methodology used in deriving these estimates.

Diagram: Key data

The above graphic illustrates each state or territory's share of Australian economic aggregates relating to Selected mining in 2005-06.

Between 2004-05 and 2005-06, estimates of most of the four key variables shown increased in most jurisdictions. The largest increases in dollar terms occurred in Western Australia and Queensland, reflecting the size and importance of Metal ore mining and Coal mining in those states and the strong performance of those industries as described (at the national level) in Chapter 2. Similarly, these states also contributed the largest increases in employment in Selected mining.
