CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Data for SITC Section 4 - Animal and vegetable oils, fats and waxes and SITC Section 9 - Commodities and transactions, n.e.s. are now included in the Export Price Index Key Figures tables on the front page of this publication. Tables 8 and 9 of this release and corresponding tables of this publication on the ABS website <http://www.abs.gov.au> have been updated to incorporate this change.

As a consequence of including these two SITC sections on the front page of the publication, the Key Points information has been reduced, with more detailed commentary now included on page 3.

The abbreviation 'n.e.c.' (not elsewhere classified) has been changed to 'n.e.s.' (not elsewhere specified) throughout this publication.


ROUNDING

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


DATA REFERENCES

Data referenced in the Key Points and Commentary are available from the tables shown in this publication, or in the corresponding tables of this publication on the ABS website <http://www.abs.gov.au>.
