JUNE QUARTER Summary Comments

Agriculture, Forestry and Fishing
  • The trend estimate fell by 4.0% and the seasonally adjusted estimate dropped 5.0%. This is the sixth quarterly fall in a row in seasonally adjusted terms and reflects the continuing effect of the drought on the farm sector. Since June quarter 2002 this industry has declined by 29.9%.

Manufacturing
  • Increased 0.8% in trend terms but fell by 0.5% in seasonally adjusted terms. The output indicator consists mainly of manufacturers' sales which fell 0.7% in seasonally adjusted terms.

Construction
  • Fell by 0.6% in trend terms and by 3.0% seasonally adjusted. This is the largest seasonally adjusted fall since December quarter 2000.

Transport and storage
  • This industry showed a 1.8% fall in trend terms and a 4.2% fall in seasonally adjusted terms. Most sectors recorded negative growth in seasonally adjusted terms, particularly air transport which fell 7.1% and services and storage which fell 7.8%.

Wholesale and Retail Trade
  • In trend terms wholesale trade rose by 0.7% (up 0.9% seasonally adjusted) and retail trade rose by 1.1% (up 2.2% seasonally adjusted). For the retail industry a seasonally adjusted increase of 1.9% in the ABS measure of retail turnover was boosted by a 5.8% surge in purchases of motor vehicles.
