Some industry sectors are characterised by few large employers while other sectors are characterised by a large number of smaller employers.
Registered business data presents the number and size of businesses in The Hills Shire within each industry sector using the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Business Register and Australian Tax Office (ATO) data. Businesses are included if they are registered for GST, with an ABN utilised in the previous financial year. Employment size is presented by number of employees.
Please note that this data set has several limitations which are explained in the data notes for this topic.
The ABS have recently released an update for the Business Register counts to June 2011, with time series from 2007 and 2009. There are significant issues with the dataset, particularly due to the fact that the data were released on the basis of the new geographic classification (SA2s), which doesn't match to Local Government Area boundaries. There is substantial work in concording this dataset to add it to the online site, since it is not comparable to the existing data. This is expected to be completed with the full dataset including time series available when the Census datasets are updated, after the end of October 2012.
