Data dictionary and caveats to information

Industries were divided between Workforce Development Councils based on Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) class codes.

The ANZSIC is used by Stats NZ for standardized collection, analysis and dissemination of economic data on an industry basis. The ANZSIC is a hierarchical classification with four levels; Divisions (the broadest level), Subdivisions, Groups and Classes (the finest level). Click here to find out more about the ANZSIC.

While ANZSIC class codes are the most detailed industry classification available, these classifications vary in their precision. This can mean it is not always immediately obvious to industries which ANZSIC class code they belong to. A full list of what is included and excluded from each class code is provided as part of the ANZSIC classification. The detailed classification | Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The majority of self-employment data is sourced from annual tax returns. Therefore, 2021 employer number is still incomplete due to the time lag in reporting of employer's tax return. To avoid confusion, the 2021 employer number has been set to zero.
