1 This publication presents a preliminary estimate for the production of pre-mixed concrete for the combined total of the six state capital cities.


2 Data presented in this publication are collected from ABS monthly survey of pre-mixed concrete production.

3 Production statistics sourced from ABS manufacturing production surveys are not collected from single establishment manufacturing businesses with fewer than four persons employed, nor from establishments predominantly engaged in non-manufacturing activities but which may carry out some manufacturing in a minor way. However, in general, the contribution of these small producers to statistical aggregates is only marginal, and data contained in this publication provide reliable information for the evaluation of movements in commodity production.


4 ABS publications draw extensively on information provided freely by individuals, businesses, governments and other organisations. Their continued cooperation is very much appreciated: without it, the wide range of statistics published by the ABS would not be available. Information received by the ABS is treated in strict confidence as required by the Census and Statistics Act 1905.
