Formatted abstract This thesis gives attention to an area of information economics not previously covered in the literature - an evaluation of the methodology and associated logic of the four sector model. A critical, but not unsympathetic, discussion of the approaches used by previous authors IS undertaken in the first part of the paper. A modified system of classification is applied to 1991 Census data for Queensland which takes account of recent changes in the type, and form of data available. The size of the State's information sector is then estimated, along with the information intensity of the various industry groups. Finally attention is turned to the relevance of the four sector model as a means of analysing the Queensland workforce.
