This data describes the industries (by sex) in which employed persons work. It applies only to people aged 15 and over who were employed in the week prior to Census. Includes employed people who usually reside in the labour force region regardless of where they work.
Data for industry are coded using the Australia and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC). The industry classification is updated periodically to take account of emerging industries and changes in the structure of the economy.
For the 2006 Census, the updated ANZSIC06 classification was used, which includes more industry divisions which better reflect the structure of the Australian economy. Data are presented using this classification as an option. However for time series, data are also presented on the older ANZSIC93 classification, as this classification was used in earlier censuses.
For more information please refer to the 2006 Census Dictionary, ANZSIC classification.
