DATA NOTES

This publication contains movement data. Care should be taken when interpreting this movement data as 'people'. See paragraph 5 of the Explanatory Notes for more detail.


The statistics in this publication have been rounded to the nearest 100 for short-term movements and to the nearest 10 for permanent and long-term movements. As a result, sums of the components may not add exactly to totals. Analysis featured in the Key Points and Main Features of this publication is based on unrounded data. Calculations made on rounded data may differ to those published.



CHANGES IN THE ISSUE

TECHNICAL NOTE: TREND REVISIONS - The "what-if" analysis in the Technical Note is presented to give an indicative view of the possible revision of the current trend estimate based on the different scenarios of the future seasonally adjusted estimates. These trend scenarios should not be used as a prediction of future trend estimates. From the November 2006 issue of Overseas Arrivals and Departures, Australia (cat. no. 3401.0) future scenarios will no longer be presented in the "what-if" analysis.
