APPENDIX INDEX STRUCTURES & WEIGHTING PATTERNS

COMPOSITION

Both the Import Price Index and the Export Price Index have been reweighted in the September quarter 2005. This is in line with the ABS' plan to reweight these indexes annually each September quarter, as explained in paragraphs 8 - 10 of the explanatory notes. The new weighting patterns for both the Import Price Index and Export Price Index, based on the Standard International Trade Classification (SITC) (Revision 3), are presented in this Appendix.


All SITC sections and divisions are included in the reweighted index structure for completeness. However, indexes for some of the lower weighted SITC section and divisions are not constructed separately and so are not available for publication.


Corresponding new weighting patterns based on classification by Broad Economic Categories (BEC), Harmonized Tariff Item Statistical Classification (HTSIC) and Australian and New Zealand Standard Industrial Classification (ANZSIC) for the Import Price Index and Australian Harmonised Export Commodity Classification (AHECC) and ANZSIC for the Export Price Index are available on request.
