The annual re-analysis of the Retail Trade series will be undertaken after the release of this issue. Any revisions to the seasonally adjusted and trend estimates series will be incorporated with the release of July 2010 issue.


There are no revisions to the original estimates. Revisions to seasonally adjusted estimates are due to the concurrent methodology for deriving seasonal factors.


Due to the increase in the excise for tobacco products announced by the Federal Government on 29 April 2010, the seasonally adjusted and trend series for Other Retailing should be used with caution. These series may be subject to revision in future releases of this publication as the impact of this announcement on the published series is fully quantified.


Data available from the Downloads tab of this issue on the ABS website include longer time series of tables in this publication, the quarterly chain volume measures and the following additional current price monthly series:

  • Retail turnover by state and 15 industry subgroups in trend, seasonally adjusted and original terms
  • Retail turnover completely enumerated and sample sector, by six industry groups in original terms
  • Retail turnover completely enumerated and sample sector, by state in original terms
