This release presents key indicators on the incidence of use of information technology and innovation in Australian business, as collected by the 2010-11 Business Characteristics Survey (BCS).
An important aim of the BCS is to release estimates for key indicators within 12 months of the reference date. While every effort has been made to ensure that the data included in this release are final, further quality assurance may result in some minor changes to estimates in subsequent releases.
STRUCTURE OF THIS RELEASE
There are two components to this release: summary information for IT and Innovation; and data cubes. The data cubes contain detailed tables for the data that underpins the tables, graphs and commentary included in the summary information sections.
FUTURE RELEASES FROM THE 2010-11 BCS
More detailed and final estimates will be released in the Innovation in Australian Business (cat. no. 8158.0) on 23 August 2012 and the Selected Characteristics of Australian Business (cat. no. 8167.0) on 13 September 2012.
