The Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts (DSITIA) is conducting a state-wide survey of the digital industry.

Its aim is to produce a Queensland Digital Industry Profile report that covers industry size, business structures, locations (particularly regional distribution), revenues, employment, ownership, markets served, exporting and research and development activities, funding, skill shortages, industry engagement with the government’s four pillars, and future policy priorities.

This is the first state-wide survey of organisations operating in the digital industry since 2006-7.

Some organisations may have already received an email from Antony Skinner, the Queensland Government Statistician, inviting their organisation to participate in this confidential survey. Responses to the 10-minute survey are due by Tuesday 16 December 2014.

If you have not received the email invitation, please contact the Government Statistician’s Office or phone 1800 068 587 to request a password to the survey.

All responses are strictly confidential and are protected by the Queensland Government’s Statistical Returns Act. This means that penalties apply under the laws of Queensland for anyone who releases your responses in a way which would identify you/your business, without your explicit consent.

If you have any difficulties accessing or completing the survey please contact the Queensland Government Statistician’s Office by telephone on 1800 068 587 or email at [email protected].
