This product details Australian production, imports, margins, taxes, subsidies, intermediate and final usage, and exports of over 900 products

Reference period
2016 - 2017

Main features

Introduction

This publication presents information on supply and use by detailed product item based on the Input-Output Product Classification (IOPC). A separate publication Australian National Accounts: Input-Output Tables (cat. no. 5209.0.55.001) provides a comprehensive range of Input-Output (I-O) flow and coefficient tables. The data published in both of these releases is consistent with the 2017-18 release of the Australian System of National Accounts (cat. no. 5204.0).

The publication comprises a list of IOPC product items and shows Australian production, imports, intermediate usage, final usage, exports, margins and taxes less subsidies on products in 2016-17. Several aggregates shown in this spreadsheet can be directly related to Tables 1, 2 and 3 of the Australian National Accounts: Input-Output Tables (cat. no. 5209.0.55.001) for 2016-17.

Classifications

The IOPC is an industry-of-origin product classification that has been specifically developed for the compilation and application of Australian (I-O) tables. Because the I-O system describes the production and subsequent use of all goods and services, an I-O product classification needs to be defined in terms of characteristic products of industry sectors. The overall principles for the preparation of such an industry-of-origin product classification include:

  • homogeneity of inputs - each product or product group should consist of items that have similar input structures or technology of production. This principle is generally applied through the definition of each IOPC item in terms of the ANZSIC industry in which it is mainly produced
  • homogeneity of disposition - each product or product group, having satisfied the first criterion, should consist of items that have similar patterns of disposition or usage. This principle is applied by reference to the description of source data items and information about the transport, distribution and product taxation margins applying to particular products.


The IOPC used in this publication is consistent with the 2006 edition of the Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC).

The IOPC has over 900 individual product items. For confidentiality and data availability reasons the values of some of these detailed products have been suppressed (shown as 'n.p.'). The practice of aggregating product details for confidentiality, used in past, has not been applied in this release.

Structure of the IOPC

The structure of the IOPC arises from its industry-of-origin basis where each product item is shown according to the industry in which it is primarily produced.

This structure is implemented in the IOPC by the adoption of ANZSIC classes as the basis for defining IOPC items. IOPC items are identified by an eight digit code with the first four digits typically referring to the ANZSIC class to which the item is primary and the last four digits the product number. Details of ANZSIC codes and their relationship to the I-O industry groups, and other industry and commodity classifications are shown in Table 2 of this release.

Table 2. industry and product concordances

The IOIG(2015) to ANZSIC06 table shows the concordance (mapping) between Input Output Industry Groups (IOIG) and Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC06).

The IOIG(2005) to IOIG(2009) and IOPC(2005) to IOPC(2009) tables also show the concordance between the 2005 and 2009 IOIG's and the 2005 and 2009 Input-Output Product Classifications (IOPC). IOIG(2005) and IOPC(2005) are based on ANZSIC(93) and IOIG(2009) and IOPC(2009) are based on ANZSIC(06).

The IOPC(2015) to IOPC(2017) table shows the concordance between the 2015 to 2017 Input-Output Product Classifications (IOPC).

The IOPC(2017) to IOPC(2018) table shows the concordance between the 2017 to 2018 Input-Output Product Classifications (IOPC).

The IOPC(2018) to CPI(17th series) table shows the concordance between IOPC(2018) and CPI(17th series) codes. In the I-O tables this shows the concordance for Household Final Consumption Expenditure (HFCE) data to the CPI codes.

The IOPG(2015) to HEC(2015-16) table shows the concordance between the Input-Output Product Group (IOPG)(2015) and Household Expenditure Classification (HEC)(2015-16) codes.

IOIG(2015) to ANZSIC06

In the IOIG(2015) to ANZSIC06 table, IOIG(2015) codes are shown in column A and IOIG(2015) descriptors are shown in column B of the table. ANZSIC codes are shown in column C and ANZSIC descriptors are shown in column D. The ANZSIC codes shown in this table are ANZSIC Class codes.

For example, IOIG 0101, the Sheep, grains, beef and dairy cattle industry is mapped to ANZSIC codes 0141 (Sheep Farming (Specialised)), 0142 (Beef Cattle Farming (Specialised)), 0143 (Beef Cattle feedlots (specialised)), 0144 (Sheep–Beef Cattle Farming), 0145 (Grain–Sheep or Grain–Beef Farming), 0146 (Rice Growing), 0149 (Other Grain Growing) and 0160 (Dairy Cattle Farming).

IOIG(2005) to IOIG(2009)

In the IOIG(2005) to IOIG(2009) table, the 2005 IOIG codes are shown in column A with the 2005 IOIG descriptors in column B. The 2009 IOIG codes are in column C with the 2009 IOIG descriptors shown in column E. Column D indicates whether a 2005 IOIG is mapped partially to a 2009 IOIG and is indicated by a 'p' in the column.

For example, the 2005 IOIG 0102 (Grains) is mapped partially to the 2009 IOIG's 0101 (Sheep, grains, beef and dairy cattle) and 0103 (Other agriculture).

IOPC(2005) to IOPC(2009)

The IOPC(2005) to IOPC(2009) table shows the 2005 IOPC code in column A with the 2005 IOPC descriptor shown in column B. Column C shows the 2009 IOPC code with the 2009 IOPC descriptor in column E. Column E indicates whether a 2005 IOPC is mapped partially to a 2009 IOPC and is indicated by a 'p' in the column.

For example, the 2005 IOPC 01110010 (Plant nurseries (incl turf)) is mapped partially to the 2009 IOPCs 01110010 (Plants grown undercover), 01120010 (Plants grown outdoors) and 01130010 (Turf).

IOPC(2015) to IOPC(2017)

The IOPC(2015) to IOPC(2017) table shows the 2015 IOPC code in column A with the 2015 IOPC descriptor shown in column B. Column C shows the 2017 IOPC code with the 2017 IOPC descriptor in column D.

IOPC(2017) to IOPC(2018)

The IOPC(2017) to IOPC(2018) table shows the 2017 IOPC code in column A with the 2017 IOPC descriptor shown in column B. Column C shows the 2018 IOPC code with the 2018 IOPC descriptor in column D. Most of the changes between IOPC(2017) and IOPC(2018) are minor corrections to the IOPC descriptors to improve their coherence.

IOPC(2018) to CPI(17th series)

The IOPC(2018) to CPI(17th series) table shows the 2018 IOPC code in column A with the 2018 IOPC descriptor shown in column C. Column D shows the CPI 17th series code with the CPI 17th series descriptor in column F. Column G indicates whether a 2018 IOPC is mapped partially to a CPI 17th series code and is indicated by a 'p' in the column.

For example, the 2018 IOPC 01110010 (Plants grown undercover) is mapped uniquely to the CPI 17th series code 543 (Other non-durable household products).

IOPG(2015) to HEC(2015-16)

The IOPG(2015) to HEC(2015-16) table shows the 2015 IOPG code in column A with the 2015 IOPG descriptor shown in column C. Column D shows the partial split of corresponding 2015-16 HEC codes within a 2015 IOPG code. Where it shows a 'p', the 2015-16 HEC code is split between different 2015 IOPG codes. Column E shows the HEC(2015-16) code with the HEC(2015-16) descriptor in column G.

For example, 2015-16 HEC 1001060101 (Crash repairs) and 1001060201 (Vehicle servicing (including parts and labour)) are proportionally split within 2015 IOPG 9401 Automotive repair and maintenance. Where it shows a 'p' in Column D, the 2015-16 HEC code 0302030104 (Other lamb and mutton nec) is split between 2015 IOPG 0101 (Sheep, grains, beef and dairy cattle) and 2015 IOPG (1101 Meat and meat product manufacturing).

There are a number of factors to take into account when using this table. It should only be applied to data at Purchasers prices as it was based on the Household Expenditure Survey (HES) which is collected at Purchasers Prices. The table was compiled from the 2015-16 HES and may not align well to data in earlier years due to the changing nature of Household expenditure and the economic conditions prevailing at the time.

Where individual Household expenditure items do not correlate to one Input-Output product group, weights have been calculated using the best data available. Correspondences for some IOPGs have not been included due to confidentiality issues.

Data from the HES, classified by the HEC does not correlate directly to HFCE data as published in the National Accounts due to the following reasons:

  • The scope of the HES excludes residents of remote areas, and those living in non-private dwellings (hotels, boarding houses and institutions);
  • HFCE data includes expenditure by Non-Profit Institutions Serving Households units that are not included in HES;
  • HFCE uses additional data sources including the Retail and Wholesale industry surveys;
  • HES data is not used to compile HFCE data for Gambling as it collects data on a different basis;
  • HES data is not used to compile Financial and insurance services as HES measures the total cost paid for insurance, and HFCE only captures the Insurance services charge;
  • HES data is not used to compile the Actual rent paid on dwellings, and HFCE also includes an imputed value for rent for owner- occupied dwellings;
  • HES estimates for Health include only out of pocket expenses, and do not include nursing home fees;
  • For Education services, HES excludes expenditure on the Higher education loan program;
  • HFCE estimates for repairs and maintenance are included in the Intermediate Usage of the Ownership of Dwellings industry and could not be concorded to HES data; and
  • HFCE estimates include an imputed value for the Financial Intermediation Services Indirectly Measured which is Measured differently in HES.
