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 for January 2010;
  • Owner-occupied housing values for March 2010; and
  • Investment housing for the period October 2003 to March 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.
