A consolidated snapshot of the communications sector and its role in the Australian economy.
At a glance
The communications sector is a critical enabler of the economy and social activity. Communications technology touches and transforms everyone’s lives.
Although its direct contribution to the economy and employment is relatively small, the communications sector exerts a substantial influence on other sectors as an enabler of economic and social activity and progress.
The BCR’s Communications Monitor provides key economic indicators about the sector. It also analyses and tracks trends to provide insights into the sector’s role in the broader economy and its dynamics.
The monitor will be updated as new data are released. Please bookmark the page for easy access, or contact us via the feedback form to stay in touch.
