NOTES


FINAL ISSUE

As foreshadowed in the September quarter 2001 issue, this is the final issue of this publication.

From the March quarter 2002, the release of state capital expenditure estimates will be brought forward to the same timing as the release of the national capital expenditure estimates. Total capital expenditure by type of asset for each state/territory in original, seasonally adjusted and trend terms will be included in Private New Capital Expenditure, Australia (Cat. no. 5625.0) from next quarter, and chain volume measures for these estimates will be introduced. Total capital expenditure by type of asset and industry for each state/territory, and estimates of expected expenditure by state (only collected in the December quarters) will be released on AusStats and will be available on request.

Please contact John Blanchette on (02) 9268 4357 or by email john.blanchette@abs.gov.au for further information.

SAMPLING ERRORS

The estimates in this publication are based on a sample survey of businesses. Because data are not collected from all businesses, the published estimates are subject to sampling variability.

Standard errors for estimates contained in this publication are shown on page 16 of the publication.


REVISIONS TO TREND

Readers should exercise care in the interpretation of the trend data as the last three observations, in particular, are likely to be revised with the addition of subsequent quarters' data. For further information, refer to Trend Estimates.


FURTHER INFORMATION
