Australian National Accounts: Supply Use Tables

This is not the latest release View the latest release

Supply use tables are an integral part of the annual compilation of the Australian System of National Accounts

Reference period
2019-20 financial year

Main features

This publication contains the supply-use tables for 2019-20. The data in this release is consistent with the 2020-21 release of the Australian System of National Accounts.

Supply-use tables are an integral and essential element of the ABS national accounts. They are building blocks for the Australian System of National Accounts as they are used to ensure GDP is balanced for all three approaches (production, expenditure and income) and provide the annual benchmarks (levels) from which the quarterly estimates are compiled. They provide detailed information about the supply and use of products in the Australian economy, and the structure of and interrelationships between Australian industries.

The supply-use time series from 1994-95 to 2019-20 are available through the Data Explorer website.


Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components in this publication are due to rounding.

Changes in this release

Historical revisions

Statistical revisions are carried out regularly in the Australian System of National Accounts to reflect the most current information and estimation methods. Periodically the ABS will revise a longer annual time series, which is often referred to as “historical revisions". These longer time series revisions focus on improving data quality (e.g. incorporating cyclical data collections such as the Census); adopting new classifications; and improving international comparability.

The following historical revisions have been incorporated in this release:

  • Childcare source improvements and reclassification - data for household and government expenditure on formal childcare is now sourced from the Department of Education, Skills and Employment. In addition, government payments for childcare assistance are now consistently treated as social transfers in kind for all government support programs from 1994 onwards, with the exception of the Childcare Tax Rebate (2004-2007) which remains a non-payable tax offset.
  • Visa application charges source improvements and reclassification - data for visa application charges is now sourced from the Department of Home Affairs, and from 2015-16 onwards, revenue obtained from visa application charges is now treated as tax revenue rather than the sale of a service. This change brings the treatment of visa application charges in the National Accounts into alignment with Government Finance Statistics, as described in the Government Finance Statistics publication.
  • Travel services imports - new data sources and method for estimating imports of travel service are incorporated into the National Accounts, Balance of Payments, and Trade in Goods and Services statistics.
  • Economic and Financial Statistics collection introduced - new source data for key variables of the Finance and Insurance industries are introduced into the National Accounts. This change was previously advised in November 2019 in the information paper Implementing the new economic and financial statistics collection in ABS economic outputs.

Further information on these improvements can be found in the article Improved estimates of the annual National Accounts: Results of the 2021 historical revisions
