Table 3.2 shows the contribution of industries to the production (as measured by total factor income) of each state and territory, as well as Australia, in 2005-06. For the purposes of this table, the activity of general government and the ownership of dwellings are each treated as industries.

In 2005-06, the largest share of production on this basis was contributed by Property and business services, which generated 12.6% of total factor income. Of the nineteen industries shown, Mining ranked equal fourth nationally, contributing 7.7%. Its share of total factor income varied markedly among the states and territories.

Mining was by far the dominant industry in both Western Australia and the Northern Territory. At 27.4% and 26.1% respectively, Mining's share of total factor income was more than twice that of the next largest industries in these states. Mining also ranked first in Queensland, compared to third in 2004-05.
