Plant Hire and Leasing
NAME OF ORGANISATION
The main internal demand for this survey is from the National Accounts Branch (NAB) who have a strong interest in the conduct of this survey as there is very little information available on the structure of this industry elsewhere. The outputs from this collection are required within NAB generally for subsidiary purposes, and more specifically in measuring the domestic supply of particular products which are used in deriving supply/use benchmarks.
The Plant and Equipment survey is one of three hire industries been surveyed (including Motor Vehicle and Personal and Household hire) that are part of an annual program of surveys targeting the Services Sector of the economy.
The main purpose of this collections is to provide data in response to user needs for size and structure information (mainly financial and employment) on a regular basis, as well as selected activity measures of interest to external clients. It also provides data which feeds into Input/Output tables and for annual bench marking of economic activity by National accounts.
The scope of the survey is all employing units on the Australian Business Register who were classified to ANZSIC 7743, plant and equipment hiring or leasing. This class consisted of employing untis mainly engaged in leasing of machinery, plant and equipment (except transport equipment) without operators, from stock physically held for that purpose. The scope was also extended to include businesses that generated income from the hriing/leasing of cranes with operators not classified to this ANZSIC class.
Table at the State level will include;
According to the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) (1292.0), each business unit is classified to a single industry. The industry allocated is based on an estimate expenditure on the primary activity of the TAU or ABN unit irrespective of whether a range of activities or a single activity is undertaken by the unit. For example, a TAU which expends most of its financial resources on hire/leasing of plant would have all operations included in the aggregates and ratios for the Plant hire and leasing industry, even if significant secondary activities (e.g. transport) were undertaken.
ANZSIC has been used to classify TAUs units included in this survey. Statistics in publications are generally presented at the ANZSIC Class level.
The Australian and New Zealand Standard Product Classification has been used to provide a basis for recompiling basic product statistics from their original classifications into a standard classification for analytical use. All product components have been mapped to ANZSPC.
