SEPTEMBER KEY POINTS
VALUE OF WORK DONE, CHAIN VOLUME MEASURES
ABOUT THIS ISSUE
This publication provides an early indication of trends in building and engineering construction activity. The data are estimates based on a response rate of approximately 80% of the value of both building and engineering work done during the quarter. More comprehensive and updated results will be released in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat.no.8762.0) on 14 January 2009 and in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 21 January 2009.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
A new base year, 2006-07, has been introduced into the chain volume estimates which has resulted in revisions to growth rates in subsequent periods. In addition, the chain volume estimates have been re-referenced to 2006-07, thereby preserving additivity in the quarters after the reference year. Re-referencing affects the levels of, but not the movements in, chain volume estimates.
There are no notes about the data.
