ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

 

This re-issue replaces the publication released on 24 August 2006. This re-issue contains amended data for state and territory government expenditure on nature parks and reserves for the periods 2002-03 and 2003-04. Subsequent totals have also been amended. There are no amendments for the 2004-05 period. The updated figures are in Tables 1, 2 and 5.

 

This publication contains estimates of Australian public funding for arts and cultural activities, facilities and services for the three years from 2002-03 to 2004-05. Estimates for the three levels of government have been compiled from administrative by-product data obtained by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) from annual reports and budget papers, and from information provided by selected Australian Government authorities (including the Australia Council), state and territory governments and local government authorities. Detailed estimates of local government funding of arts and cultural activities are not available for this edition of this publication but are expected to be available for a future edition, when the ABS begins to classify local government data by a more detailed Local Government Purpose Classification.

 

Funding data in this publication are aligned, where possible, with the categories specified in the Industry Classification of the Australian Culture and Leisure Classifications (cat. no. 4902.0), which were released in 2001. Cultural activities have been classified into two major groups: Heritage; and the Arts.
