The Information Paper: Outcome of the Review of the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes, 2012 (cat. no. 6427.0.55.004) was released on the 6 March 2012. This information paper presents the outcome of the review process and addresses issues such as: the principal purpose, the organising structure, coverage and release timing.

The changes to the Producer and International Trade Price Indexes will be introduced from the September reference quarter 2012.

  • The ABS will delay the timing of the Producer Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6427.0) and International Trade Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6457.0) releases by nine working days, aligning with the National Accounts and Balance of Payments publications deadlines
  • The current timing of the preliminary estimates of imports chain volume measures and implicit price deflators presented in the third month of this publication cannot be supported under the revised time frames. The ABS plans to release a new electronic publication presenting the preliminary imports chain volume measures as soon as practicable after the release of the International Trade Price Indexes, Australia (cat. no. 6457.0).

The ABS is seeking feedback on the proposed changes specified above. Please contact Chris Hinchcliffe on Canberra (02) 6252 6908 or via email by 30 March 2012.
