Updated information from survey respondents has resulted in revisions to both current price and chain volume estimates for March quarter 2012. Price deflators have also been revised for March quarter 2012 which has resulted in further revisions to the chain volume estimates. These revisions apply to original estimates for Cafes, restaurants and takeaway food services as well as state and territory aggregates.
Revisions to seasonally adjusted estimates are due to revisions to original estimates as well as the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors.
