*IMPACT OF THE FLOODS

Flooding in Queensland began in late December 2010. Data collection and processing for the data in the Housing Finance, Australia, Dec 2010 publication were not disrupted. It is expected that the economic impact of floods/cyclone in Queensland and other states, if any, will be reflected in the forthcoming issues of Housing Finance, Australia (cat. no. 5609.0).
