REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

The June quarter 2017 national accounts are affected by revisions published in the June quarter release of International Trade Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6457.0). These revisions relate to coal exports, and are applied back to the September quarter 2016. These price indexes form the basis of price deflators that are used to derive chain volume measures for exports and imports in this publication and the Balance of Payments and International Investment Position, Australia (cat. no. 5302.0).

There are also revisions in this issue due to the incorporation of more up-to-date data and concurrent seasonal adjustment.


UPCOMING CHANGES

From the September quarter 2017 onwards, there will be changes to the published levels of gross value added (GVA) by industry and an additional table containing quarterly estimates of components of GVA by industry in current price terms. Details of the new industry breakdowns and the affected tables are included in the Information Paper: Changes to selected series in the annual and quarterly Australian National Accounts (cat. no. 5204.0.55.013).
