CHANGES IN THE NEXT ISSUE


CHANGES IN THE NEXT ISSUE

Commencing with September quarter 2009 reference period, the frame information and sample design for the Quarterly Business Indicators Survey has been improved by incorporation of the 2006 Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (cat. no. 1292.0), replacing the 1993 ANZSIC, the inclusion of all non-employing businesses which contribute significantly to economic activity and integration of updated size variable information for each business on the frame. These changes will result in impacts on our Survey estimates, relative to current published historic series.

These changes will be managed for Quarterly Business Indicators published statistics by production of revised historic series which align past published estimates to the estimates including statistical changes introduced from September quarter 2009. An Information paper describing these changes in more detail is scheduled for release in early November. The information paper will include mock-ups of the time series spreadsheets as they will appear from the September 2009 issue.
