Australian Defence Industry Account
The Australian Defence Industry Account (ADIA) is a satellite account that measures the direct economic contribution and direct employment headcount of the defence industry to the Australian economy.
Australian defence industry
The Australian defence industry represents the production of goods and services invoiced to the Department of Defence. For example, if a vehicle manufacturer supplies vehicles both to Defence and the broader economy, only the activity associated with the vehicles supplied to Defence is captured.
Only the direct defence industry contributions and employment are included. For an activity to be included as part of the defence industry, there must be a direct relationship between the Department of Defence and the supplier of the good or service.
