STATE ACCOUNTS


South Australia's June 2006 quarter State Final Demand in chain volume (trend) terms was $16,410m and Australia's Domestic Final Demand was $241,677m.

The 0.1% increase in South Australia's State Final Demand recorded for the June 2006 quarter continues a pattern of declining growth rates since the March 2002 quarter. Over the last three quarters, growth in South Australia's State Final Demand has been less than a third of the growth in Australia's Domestic Final Demand. In every quarter since the September 2003 quarter, South Australia's quarterly growth has been less than that of Australia as a whole.

In the March 2002 quarter South Australian State Final Demand comprised 7.0% of Australian Domestic Final Demand; and by the June 2006 quarter, the proportion had declined to 6.8%.
