ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This publication updates the preliminary estimates released in Construction Work Done, Australia (cat. no. 8755.0) on 23 February 2011.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

No changes in this issue.


SIGNIFICANT REVISIONS THIS QUARTER

Compared with the current price estimates in original terms published in the previous issue of this publication:
  • The September quarter work done estimates have been revised down by $112.2m. These revisions occurred predominantly in the Roads, highways and subdivisions and Sewerage and Drainage commodities.


DATA NOTE

Widespread flooding in the eastern states, particularly Queensland, and other recent natural disasters have not affected the quality of statistics in this release. As these events occurred after, or very late, in the December quarter reference period, the overall level of construction activity was not noticeably affected for either national or state level estimates.
