The objective of ICT Statistical Compendium was to produce a series of ‘snapshots’ of statistical data on the ICT workforce for ACS members, industry and government, and a potential ‘bible’ for ICT users, incorporating statistics on the Australian ICT sector, ICT higher and vocational education, ICT trade, and ICT employment and skills.
As with each edition, this compendium does not include all of the available data, but we have tried to amass a range of data addressing the main questions that arise. Some data included in the first publication – e.g. ABS ICT industry data – has again been supplemented with later data from CIIER in this edition, as insufficient ICT specific information was available from the ABS. Where no later data could be identified, sometimes because last year’s issue was delayed, but the data is considered still highly relevant, information has been repeated.
