This information paper advises users of proposed changes to the AusStats tables associated with the publication International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0).
A concordance between the current AusStats tables (lotus 1-2-3 .wks format) and the proposed new tables (in .xls format) is included below.
Also attached below are links to each new table providing a view of the proposed new format of the table.
These changes are due to come into effect with the April 2005 issue of 5368.0 which will be released on 2 June 2005.
The new product provides a range of benefits for time series clients including:
- longer time series (we can now provide more than 255 observations in a single series) are presented in columns in accordance with Time Series analysis conventions
- consistent and complete series metadata is provided for every series displayed
- a readily recognised file format (Excel) that will 'auto launch' in most business IT environments
- built in features on which clients can base reliable processing systems.
For further information or if you have any queries about the change or related statistics, contact Kevin Yeadon on (02) 6252 6255.
