CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

The seasonally adjusted and trend estimates in this publication have been revised as a result of the annual seasonal reanalysis which reviews the seasonal and trading day factors in more detail than possible in the monthly processing cycle.


REVISIONS

Revisions in original terms were made to commercial finance and personal finance from December 2006 to November 2009. These revisions have enabled the removal of the trend break which had been applied to personal and commercial finance between November and December 2008.

Seasonally adjusted and trend series have been revised as a result of revisions to the original series, the incorporation of estimates for the latest month and the revision of seasonal factors due to the annual seasonal reanalysis and the concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
