Economic contribution or Gross Value Add is the output of the creative sector less goods and services sourced from other suppliers and is the sector’s contribution to gross national or state product.
Updates of Gross Value Add are derived from annual estimates from National Institute of Economic and industry Research (NIEIR) and current quarterly ABS Census and Labour Force data collections.
Re-baselining of quarterly Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) Labour Force data may cause variances to annual economic contribution reporting (see employment technical notes).
