CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Seasonal Factors

Seasonally adjusted and trend estimates for lending finance have been revised as a result of the annual seasonal re-analysis which takes account of additional data that have become available since the previous re-analysis.


REVISIONS

In this issue revisions have been made to the original series as a result of improved reporting of survey and administrative data. These revisions have impacted on:
  • Personal finance values for the period September 2011 to November 2011;
  • Owner occupied housing finance values for the period October 2011 to November 2011.

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 concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
