to determine employment and plan ways to increase its contribution to economic growth. Like all industries, the Australian maritime industry is competing for attention and resources in a busy world – from people working within the industry, government and other stakeholders such as maritime’s larger siblings in the transport industry: road and rail. This article examines how the maritime industry is currently defined in terms of activities and, in particular, employment data. But the vexing question remains to be answered: just how many people are employed in the Australian maritime industry? To answer this question the article investigates different data collection approaches and finally presents a single, comparative snap shot on total employment in the maritime sector of the Australian economy at the close of 2010.
