Business establishments per block by ANZSIC

Data collected as part of the City of Melbourne's Census of Land Use and Employment (CLUE). The data covers the period 2002-20. It shows the number of business establishments per city (CLUE) block, classified by their ANZSIC1 industry and small area allocation.

A business establishment is defined as a

• Commercial occupant in a building

• Separate land use

• Any permanent presence of economic activity in accordance with standard Industry classification (ANZSIC).

Hence, if one organisation has its presence in several buildings in the CLUE area, each time it will be counted as a separate establishment. Consequently, the count of establishments presented in CLUE represents the number of locations, rather than 'enterprises'.
