Thus the ATO has kindly provided all the salaries and wages data (for 12 years), and sole trader data, by fine detailed industry and location. Sole Trader's have 500 industries and employees have 1500 occupations. Australian locations, while requested at postcode level, were provided at a statistical area level (SA4) which splits Australia into 100 regions of similar population. Cities have many zones, while the country has large zones.
See my request for the data here.
The resulting dataset has two tables:
- Sole Traders (100,000 rows) 2014 $96B, 2002 $61B.
- Salary and Wages (200,000 rows) 2014 $584B, 2002 $285B.
