PREFACE

INFORMATION PAPER

NOTES

This information paper advises users of proposed changes to the AusStats tables associated with the publication "Construction Work Done, Australia, Preliminary" (cat. no. 8755.0).


A concordance between the current AusStats tables (lotus 1-2-3 .wks format) and the proposed new tables (in .xls format) is included below. Please note that table 11, table 12 and table 13 will remain in the lotus 1-2-3 .wks format, so the layout will not change. Tables in .xls format, i.e. tables 1 - 10, are now presented in $'000, not $m.


Also attached below are links to the new tables providing a view of the proposed new format for these tables.


These changes are due to come into effect with the June quarter 2005 issue of 8755.0 which will be released on 24 August 2005.


The new product provides a range of benefits for time series clients including:

  • longer time series (we can now provide more than 255 observations in a single series) are presented in columns in accordance with Time Series analysis conventions
  • consistent and complete series metadata is provided for every series displayed
  • a readily recognised file format (Excel) that will 'auto launch' in most business IT environments
  • built in features on which clients can base reliable processing systems.

The new format files can be opened, read and manipulated using Excel 5.0/95 (or equivalent), however, some features will not be available unless you have Excel 97 (or better).
