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 have an impact on:
  • Commercial Finance values for the periods August 2014 to September 2014
  • Lease Finance values for the period September 2014

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