CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Both the Import Price Index and the Export Price Index data have been reweighted for the September quarter 2013. Both indexes are reweighted annually. See paragraphs 8-10 of the Explanatory Notes for further details. The new weighting patterns are provided in Appendix 1 of this issue. As a consequence of the annual reweighting, the points contribution data for the June quarter 2013 shown in Tables 2, 8 and 17 differ from that published in the previous issue of this publication.
