Australia – Non profit organizations employees

About 36,000 non profit organisations employ staff.

In 1999/2000, nonprofit organizations that employed staff:
*empolyed 604.000 people, 6.8 of australian in employment
*had an income of  $33.5 billion
*contributed $21 billion,or 3.3 to GDP.

If an adjustment is made for the uncosted component of volunteer activity, which is such a major characteristic of the not for profit sector, then the contribution to GDP is believed to be around 5% – clearly an enormous benefit being delivered to the Australian community by the not for profit sector. (ref. ABS Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account, 2002).
