CHANGES IN FUTURE ISSUES
This publication includes the final release of wage price indexes for occupation groups. This data appears in Tables 7 and 8 of this publication and in electronic Tables 7a and 7b on the ABS website. Future issues will not contain wage price indexes for occupation groups. Users of this data who are interested in discussing what other wage price index data are available, can contact David Taylor on Perth (08) 9360 5151 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
From the September quarter 2009, the content and format of tables containing the industry classification will change to reflect the contemporary Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC06).
