We collect information from a variety of sources to undertake our activities as the government's principal revenue collection agency. Tax returns and activity statements are among them. The information we gather helps us produce statistics to inform the community about the tax and super systems we administer.
You will find comprehensive statistics in our annual publication Taxation statistics. Taxation statistics is developed in consultation with the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Department of Treasury and a number of academic and professional bodies.
We produced Taxation statistics 2008–09: 100 people, where we represent the millions of tax returns as a population of 100 people.
Our other statistics
You will also find statistics in our Annual report, other statistical products and in our detailed research findings.
Taxation statistics is our key statistical report. We also provide other statistics in tailored statistical reports, general research findings and in key corporate publications. We welcome feedback on the statistics we report and regularly review what users want.
