This spreadsheet is a reissue of Consumer Price Index: 15th Series Weighting Pattern (cat. no. 6430.0), released on 20 September, which advised new weights and points contributions for the 15th Series Australian Consumer Price Index.
Some minor changes have been made to the weights and points contributions after a problem was discovered with the way the 2003-04 expenditure shares for the 15th series CPI were revalued to June quarter 2005 prices. These changes have no effect on any previously published CPI data and are made in order to maintain an accurate public record in relation to the forthcoming CPI.
The 15th series Australian Consumer Price index will be incorporated into the September quarter 2005 CPI, which will be published as previously advised on 26 October 2005.
