DATA NOTES

This publication contains overseas movement data which should not be interpreted as 'persons'. See paragraph 5 of the Explanatory Notes for more detail.

The statistics in this publication have been rounded to the nearest 100 for short-term movements and to the nearest 10 for permanent and long-term movements. As a result, sums of the components may not add exactly to totals. Analysis featured in this publication is based on unrounded data. Calculations made on rounded data may differ to those published.


CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

FUTURE REVISIONS

May and June 2012 arrivals and departures data will be revised in the August issue of Overseas Arrivals and Departures. Investigations by the ABS and DIAC uncovered a processing lag in passenger cards, in particular from Australian sea ports. The data for May and June 2012 will be reprocessed in time for inclusion in next month's issue.
