ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This publication updates the preliminary estimates released in Construction Work Done, Australia, Preliminary (cat. no. 8755.0) on 29 August 2007. The data in this publication are based on a response rate of approximately 96% of the value of building work done during the quarter. The data are subject to revision when returns from the following quarter are processed. Final data for the June quarter 2007 will be released in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 21 January 2008.



CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

A new chain volume reference year is updated annually. From 2007 onwards the updating of the reference year will be completed in the September quarter each year. In September 2007 the new reference year will be 2005-06 for chain volume estimates. This will result in revisions to growth rates in quarters following 2005-06 but will preserve additivity in those quarters. For earlier periods re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
