New release from ABS on characteristics of small business 2011-12

Another major release on small business stats from the ABS - Cat.8167.0

 It covers a large range of characteristics which deserve our attention, including:

  • Business Structure and Arrangements
  • Business Markets and Competition
  • Business Finance
  • Business Use of Information Technology
  • Business Innovation
  • Business Performance
  • Barriers to Innovation and General Business Activities or Performance
  • Skills
Datacubes are available for download if you wish to do some analysis.

When the word productivity appears in nearly every discussion on business development, there is one key message that ABS wishes you to know:

Businesses that pursued innovation were more than twice as likely to have improved their productivity than those that didn't.
