Notes:
Figures may not total exactly due to rounding.
Production budgets for each production have been allocated to the year when principal photography commenced.
Production budgets have been allocated to one location only per title, except in the case of co-productions between Australian states, where total budgets are apportioned between the states.
Co-productions have been allocated to the Australian production company’s state of residence. For companies based in more than one state, the state of residence for the relevant production is allocated in consultation with the production company.
Only the Australian component of co-production budgets has been included, therefore figures do not match total budgets reported in Drama production overview > Activity summary.
Figures for the ACT, Tasmania and the Northern Territory are not included for confidentiality reasons; however, they are included in the totals for calculating percentages.
* Dollar value as per each year specified (ie not adjusted for inflation).
