Classification structure:Help on this term

The structure of ANZSIC is a hierarchical classification with four levels: Divisions (the broadest level), Subdivisions, Groups and Classes (the finest level).

At the Divisional level, the main purpose is to provide a limited number of categories which provide a broad overall picture of the economy and are suitable for the publication of summary tables in official statistics. The Subdivision, Group and Class levels provide increasingly detailed dissections of these categories for the compilation of more specific and detailed statistics.

Conceptual framework

The conceptual framework adopted for the development of ANZSIC 2006 uses supply-side based industry definitions and groupings. Business units engaged in similar productive activities are grouped together.
