The Australian Built Environment Sector
The economic contribution of 16 industries to the construction, management and maintenance of the built environment.
The research is based on the Australian Bureau of Statistics annual publication Australian Industry, and covers 12 years of output and employment from 2007-2019. The method used is explained in Measuring the Built Environment Sector pdf
The report combines data for the industries included in Australian Industry that together form one of the largest and most important industrial sectors in the economy. It includes industries that have a direct physical relationship with buildings, structures, and the built environment. These industries are collectively called the Australian Built Environment Sector (BES).
The analysis is based on Industry value added (IVA) and industry employment. IVA is the estimate of an industry’s output, and is broadly the difference between the industry’s total income and total expenses. The data is presented at varying levels for industry divisions, subdivisions and classes. The most recent issue is for 2018-19.
The 2021 Report will be published after the next release from the ABS.
