CHANGES IN THE JUNE QUARTER 2009 ISSUE
In the June quarter 2009 the ABS introduced updated forms for the Survey of Financial Information which is the primary source of data for this publication. The updates have occurred because of a revision to international standards to reflect the changes that have occurred in the financial system during the past 10 years. As a result of these changes several series in Tables 9 through 19 are only available up to March quarter 2009. For further information on the specific series involved please contact Judy Sykes on 02 6252 5222 or alternatively firstname.lastname@example.org.
