  • Personal finance for March 2010 and April 2010; and
  • Investment housing for March 2010 and April 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.
