MARCH KEY POINTS
CHANGES TO THIS ISSUE
Following ongoing quality assurance work a number of data quality issues have been identified with table 37 - National capital accounts by sector and subsector. This table will be unavailable until further notice. However, capital account by sector will continue to be published as part of table 22 - flow of funds matrix.
During the March quarter 2011 the investment activity of some units have been confidentialised to maintain the anonymity of those units that have not yet given approval to publish their investment activity and in the case where they may be identifiable. Included are units impacted by the privatisation of four Government owned enterprises, life insurance institutions and listed other financial institutions. As a consequence of suppressing estimates directly impacted, it has been necessary to consequentially suppress other series in the affected table to preserve confidentiality. Statistics published in this issue reflect these changes.
The Central bank, banks, securitisers and bond market tables include estimates for internally securitised paper. Please refer to page 6 of the December quarter 2008 release for the ABS treatment of these securities.
REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE
There have been revisions back to June 2002 to previously published aggregates due to quality assurance work undertaken through a review of the compilation of the published estimates and through data providers to the ABS Survey of Financial Information, ABS Survey of International Invetsment and APRA administrative data sets. As a result there are a number of series breaks between March quarter 2002 and June quarter 2002. These series have yet to be backcasted to June quarter 1988, the beginning of the time-series. If you would like more details regarding these series, please contact us on our inquiries line.
