Note: Interstate trade data are released quarterly. This is the second quarter for which the Queensland interstate trade estimates have been produced using sample survey methodology. As the new methodology differs significantly from that of the old survey, the results should be considered a break in series. Therefore, historical comparisons for total level imports and exports are presented for the previous quarter's results only.
Queensland interstate trade figures for the December quarter 2008 will be available on 17 March 2009.
