CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Due to the reduction in agricultural commodity content collected in the 2007-08 Agricultural Resource Management Survey (ARMS), compared to previous Agricultural Surveys and the Agricultural Census, gross values for some commodities are not available. However, these have been estimated and included in aggregates. Refer to the Explanatory Notes for further detail.
As a result of the reduction in commodity items, the chain volume index previously included in this publication, has not been produced in this issue.
Data items at sub-state geographic levels (Statistical Division and Natural Resource Management region), previously released in Agricultural Commodities: Small Area Data, Australia (cat. no. 7125.0), will be attached as datacubes to this publication.
For further information about these and related statistics, contact the National Information and Referral Service on 1300 135 070.
