REVISIONS IN THIS ISSUE

This release incorporates amendments to the following seasonally adjusted analytical series:
  • All groups CPI, seasonally adjusted,
  • Trimmed mean, and
  • Weighted median.

Changes have been made to the Key figures table (page 1), the Main contributors to change commentary (page 6), and 'TABLE 8. CPI: Analytical Series, Weighted Average of Eight Capital Cities'.

These amendments are the result of correcting an error where the household textiles expenditure class had been incorrectly classified as non–seasonal in the calculation of these series.

ROUNDING

Any discrepancies between totals and sums of components in this publication are due to rounding.
