SHORT-TERM VISITOR ARRIVAL ESTIMATES
The ABS previously announced its intention to cease the release of Short-term Visitor Arrivals to Australia, Preliminary (cat. no. 3401.0.55.001) with the release of the December 2003 issue. Recent user feedback has identified emerging and continuing demand. These statistics are modelled estimates using recent overseas arrivals based on passport movement transaction and past disaggregrations from incoming passenger cards.
The title of the release will be changed to Short-term Visitor Arrival Estimates (cat. no. 3401.0.55.001) and will continue to be released on a monthly basis in 2004.
