ABOUT THIS RELEASE

This paper describes changes to the Retail Trade series which will be implemented in the July 2004 issue of Retail Trade, Australia (cat. no. 8501.0). The changes will arise from the introduction of a new sample design and an improved estimation method. The changes will cause revisions to the historical level estimates but the effects of the changes on movements should be minimal.
