CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
The viticultural information presented in this publication was collected through the 2011 Agricultural Census rather than the viticulture collection that was run in 2010. As a result there are some differences in the survey methodology used and the level of information collected which has resulted in a reduction in the amount of information published in this years release.
All sources cited refer to ABS publications and/or ABS data available on request.
Where figures have been rounded, discrepancies may occur between sums of the component items and totals.
