This publication updates the preliminary estimates released in Construction Work Done, Australia (cat. no. 8755.0) on 26 November 2008.

SIGNIFICANT REVISIONS THIS QUARTER

There are no significant revisions in this issue.


DATA NOTES

A new base year, 2006-07, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2006-07, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
