INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT POSITION (IIP)
In original terms, data have been revised back to September quarter 2010.
The 'capital goods' of the goods debits series has been revised from July 2010 onwards since the release of the March 2012 issue of International Trade in Goods and Services, Australia (cat. no. 5368.0). The revised goods debits data aligns with the data to be published in the March quarter 2012 issue of Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product (cat. no. 5206.0) to be released on 6 June 2012.

CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
An improvement to the seasonal adjustment methodology of the current price value of coal, coke and briquettes component has been introduced from September quarter 2005 onwards. Previously the coal, coke and briquettes component had only a length-of-quarter adjustment applied, from September quarter 2005, this component is independently seasonally adjusted. This change in methodology will be closely monitored as part of our ongoing improvement program.
