ABS to conduct two surveys of screen content industry

1 August 2007

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is this month surveying film, television, video production and digital games development services in Australia.

The Film, Television and Video Production and Post-Production, Digital and Visual Effects Services 2006-07 publication will report on production levels, income, employment numbers and profitability across the audio-visual production industry. Last conducted in 2002-03, the survey has been expanded following consultation with the Australian Film Commission (AFC), film agencies and the wider industry to provide greater detail on post-production, digital and visual effects.

The Digital Games Development Survey will provide detailed measures of the performance, structure and activity of the businesses operating in Australia, including the composition of income earned, details of expenses and the characteristics of the workforce. This is the first time the ABS has conducted a survey of this sector.

"The AFC strongly supports industry participation in these important surveys," said Acting AFC Chief Executive Chris Fitchett. "Findings from the Film, Television and Video Production and Post-Production, Digital and Visual Effects Services publication will provide an extremely timely industry benchmark from which to chart growth, now and into the future, following the major funding initiatives announced in the recent Federal Budget. The Digital Games Development Survey will expand the information available on this dynamic sector."

The surveys are part of the ABS's commitment to providing statistics on a range of service industries in Australia. The findings of both surveys will be published in June 2008. For further information see the downloadable PDFs at the bottom of this page.

Data from the previous surveys of film, television and video production can be found online in AFC's Get The Picture, while the publications in full can downloaded from the ABS site.
