IMPACT OF THE FLOODS
Flooding in Queensland began in late December 2010. It is expected that the first significant economic impact of this and floods in other states will be reflected in the March quarter 2011 release of this publication.
Price collection for the December quarter 2010 was not affected by the floods.
Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components in this publication are due to rounding.
