ABARE Fuel and Electricity Survey, Financial Year 2001/2002 -->
D. Data Outputs
D1 Data outputs
What are the principal outputs or data items to be produced? (D1)
Note. Refers to the main data items to be produced by the survey (eg turnover of business, satisfaction with a government program the business is participating in), how they will be cross-classified (eg by geography, industry, size, sector of business, etc) -- this could be in the form of a list of tables.
The principal data outputs to be produced from the 2001-2002 FES will include:

- the addition and maintenance of current actual and forecast data to the comprehensive fuel and energy statistical data collection maintained by ABARE for analytical, statistical and research purposes; and
- the publication of a comprehensive set of statistical tables on the amount of energy consumed and produced in Australia, by industry, by fuel type and by State for the 1998-99 to 2005-06 periods. The proposed publication is expected to be in a similar format to previous ABARE "Australian Energy" reports.
The publication, 'Australian Energy - Market Developments and Projections to 2014-15' (ABARE Research Report 99.4) was one of the principal outputs from the 1999 survey, and provides an example of one of the principal outputs to be produced from the current survey. The report contains a snap shot of the type of data to be produced, whilst more detailed data will also be made available to clients in electronic format (on diskette, CD & e-mail).
In addition, the data produced by the survey will also be used in a number of other research and commodity streams within the bureau.
D2 Use of standards
What consideration has been given to the use of standards? Please specify. (D2)
Note. Should include standard data items (such as employment, housing, etc) and standard classifications (such as industry, geography, commodity, etc.). Should not include market research processing standards (see I2).
Significant consideration has been undertaken for the inclusion of both Australian and international standards in the design of the FES. The standards to be used in the survey include:
Return to top
- fuel classifications;
- equipment classifications; and
- industry classifications based on the Australian New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZIC).
D3 Data consistency
What consideration has been given to making data item definitions consistent between repeats of this survey or across other surveys? (D3)
Both the current and past FES surveys have been designed with the significant use of Australian and international industry and fuel classification standards, ensuring consistency between this survey and other relevant Australian and/or international surveys, where possible.
