Planning for business: a guide from the Australian Bureau of Statistics

Australians regularly provide the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) with information about their working life; how and where they live; family and family structures; what they spend their money on; and their hobbies or recreational activities. This information enables the ABS to put together a picture of Australia.

If you are considering starting up, or you're already in a small- or medium-sized business, ABS has information to help you make informed business decisions.
