In seasonally adjusted chain volume terms, Western Australia's state final demand rose 0.3% ($106 million) to $30,711 million in the September quarter 2007, a substantial drop from the 3.3% growth in the previous quarter. The easing in growth was attributable to much lower private investment in machinery and equipment, falling $214 million (6.5%) during the September quarter. There was also significantly lower public sector investment, with public corporations lowering investment by $75 million (13.2%) and general government reducing investment by $71 million (10.3%). Contributing to growth during the September quarter was increased household consumption expenditure (up $255 million or 1.8%), dwelling investment (up $107 million or 4.9%) and non-dwelling construction investment (up $102 million or 2.3%).
