Commencing with September quarter 2010, state specific deflators will be applied in the calculation of state volume estimates for capital expenditure for buildings and structures in place of a national deflator. This approach will be consistent with National Accounts methodology and the treatment of the equipment asset type in capital expenditure statistics. This change will result in minor revisions to previously published volume estimates for building and structures capital expenditure by state. Total Australia series are not affected.

In addition, as happens in September quarter each year, revisions to previously released data will occur as a result of the annual re-analysis of seasonally adjusted data series and the movement forward of the index year for the calculation of chain volume measures.
