CULTURAL AND CREATIVE ACTIVITY
ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION
This publication presents experimental measures of the economic contribution of cultural and creative activity in Australia, within the context of a satellite account linked to the Australian System of National Accounts.
The publication was developed in response to strong user interest and was informed by public consultation as described in the ABS' Discussion Paper: Cultural and Creative Activity Satellite Accounts (cat. no. 5271.0.55.001) and Information Paper: Cultural and Creative Activity Satellite Accounts (cat. no. 5271.0.55.002).
The publication was made possible with investment funding by the federal and state and territory governments through the Cultural Ministers' Statistics Working Group. The ability to produce the satellite accounts for future reference years will depend on the continued availability of investment funds from stakeholders, as well as the continued availability of the various input data needed to construct the accounts.
Feedback and inquiries are welcome and will assist the ABS with the future planning of this work, including the potential to apply the satellite accounts' methods to other areas of stakeholder interest. The ABS also welcomes opportunities to collaborate with organisations undertaking similar work for other nations, and to collaborate towards the development of international standards. Feedback and inquiries may be made to the Assistant Director, National Centre for Culture and Recreation Statistics, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

DATA VALUES AND ROUNDING
All monetary values, unless otherwise indicated, are shown in Australian dollars rounded to the nearest million. Where figures have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between the sums of the component items and totals. Where used, the term 'billion' means 'thousand million' in line with Australian standards.
Counts of entities in the section 'Analysis of Results' refer to counts classified by employment size, which may differ to counts classified by turnover size where the data has been confidentialised.
QUALITY OF ESTIMATES
While as much care as possible has been taken to ensure the quality of the estimates in the satellite accounts, users should exercise some caution in the use and interpretation of the results. In order to produce estimates at a finer level of detail than is normally provided in the national accounts, some of the data used to produce the satellite accounts have been extended to the limits of their design capabilities. Assumptions underlying the estimates also have an effect on the estimates' quality.
