2006 Australian and New Zealand Industry Classification (ANZSIC)

The 2006 Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) provides a framework for organising data about businesses - by enabling grouping of business units carrying out similar productive activities. It has undergone many changes since first released in 1993 and was redeveloped by the ABS in collaboration with Statistics New Zealand. The ABS uses ANZSIC in most of its economic collections and for the compilation of the national accounts. Whether you work in the government, research or business sector, the ANZSIC can be a useful tool for financial, administrative and statistical purposes.

ANZSIC 2006 provides a contemporary and internationally comparable industrial classification system. For example, a whole range of 'new economy' activities have been recognised, including: Internet publishing and broadcasting, provision of Internet access services, computer retailing and communication equipment manufacturing.
