In this issue revisions have been made to the original series as a result of improved reporting of survey and administrative data. These revisions impact on:
  • Owner occupied and investment housing for June 2010; and
  • Housing loan outstandings to households for the period December 2008 to June 2010, apart from September and October 2009.

Seasonally adjusted and trend series have been revised as a result of revisions to the original series, the incorporation of estimates for the latest month and the revision of seasonal factors due to the concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
