National Mutual Economy Report

The National Mutual Economy Report is an annual report on the size and contribution of the Australian co‑operative and mutual sector. It incorporates Australia’s Top 100 list of co-ops and mutuals. The BCCM has published the NME Report each year since 2014.

The report maps the composition and overall health of the co‑operative and mutual sector using the Australian Co‑operative and Mutual Enterprise Index (ACMEI). The ACMEI is the longitudinal research project of Professor Tim Mazzarol at the University of Western Australia.

Despite representing some of Australia’s largest private businesses, Australia’s co-op and mutual sector is relatively poorly understood. Since the NME Report there is better understanding of these businesses and their contribution to the national economy.
