Northern Territory 007-08 budget The Public Sector The public sector is a major contributor to the Territory economy, providing a wide range of services. It consists of Australian, Territory and local government activity, including defence. In 2005-06, the non-defence public sector accounted for about 24.7 per cent of state final demand (SFD) higher than most other jurisdictions. The non-defence public sector is the largest employer in the Territory, accounting for about 27 per cent of total employment in 2005-06 (32 per cent when defence is included). The size of the non-defence public sector relative to the size of the Territory economy has declined over the past two decades, reflecting the maturation and diversification of the Territory economy. 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 Qld WA Vic NSW SA Tas NT ACT Australia Non-Defence Defence %Public Sector Expenditure as a Proportion of SFD, 2005-06 Source: ABS Cat.
