WHAT'S NEW THIS MONTH

Topics which have been updated with new data in this month's issue of SA Stats include: Consumption; Construction; Price Indexes; Labour Force; International Merchandise Trade; Housing Finance and Water.

There have been some changes to the Retail Trade data presented in this publication. Previous issues of SA Stats included monthly trend series estimates, however the monthly Retail Trade trend series has been suspended as at November 2008. Further information is available from Retail Trade, Australia (cat. no. 8501.0). SA Stats will include seasonally adjusted monthly Retail Trade data until the trend series is reintroduced. The quarterly Retail Trade trend series data for the December quarter 2008 is included in this month's SA Stats.

This month's issue of SA Stats includes a feature article on Recent Increases in South Australia's Fertility. In 2007, South Australia's fertility rate was 1.92, the highest level since 1975. The article examines the fertility rate with regard to the age of the mother and the relative socio-economic status of the region in which she lives.
