City of Melbourne CLUE Business Establishments by CLUE Industries (Block) 2016

This dataset was collected as part of the City of Melbourne's Census of Land Use and Employment (CLUE). The data shows the number of business establishments per city (CLUE) block, classified by their CLUE industry (from ANZSIC) and small area allocation. The data is aggregated to the 2016 Blocks for CLUE Boundaries and covers the year period of 2016.

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'.
