  • About this Release

The Economic Activity Survey (EAS) is an annual business survey conducted by the ABS to provide information about the operation and financial performance of all businesses in the public trading and private employing sectors of the Australian economy for use in Input-Output tables and the National Accounts. The availability of identifiable unit level Business Income Tax (BIT) data provided by the ATO has enabled the ABS to produce estimates at a finer industry level with the benefits of improved coverage and data quality but with no increase in provider load, based on directly collected EAS data combined with BIT data, referred to as EAS/Tax estimates.
