REVISIONS

In this issue revisions have been made to the original series as a result of improved reporting of survey and administrative data. These revisions impact on:
  • Personal finance values from November 2009 to January 2010,
  • Number of commitments for personal finance from January 2007 to January 2010,
  • Commercial Finance from December 2009 to January 2010.

Seasonally adjusted and trend series have been revised as a result of revisions to the original series, the incorporation of estimates for the latest month and the revision of seasonal factors due to the concurrent seasonal adjustment methodology.
