Statistics of secured finance provided by banks to individuals for the construction or purchase of dwellings for owner occupation, and details of other selected items relating to the provision of housing finance.
This publication is the final issue in this series. In future, statistics on housing finance provided by savings and trading banks will be shown in two other ABS publications as follows:
(i) Statistics on lending commitments (conceptually the same as loan approvals) for housing purposes will continue to be published, but on a revised basis as from July 1984, in the existing publication Housing Finance for Owner Occupation, Australia (Cat. No. 5609.0)
(ii) Statistics on the total balances outstanding at end of period on housing loans will continue to be available in the publication Savings Banks, Australia (Cat. No. 5602.0)
Statistics on interest debited during period to savings bank housing loan accounts of individuals will no longer be available.
This publication has been converted from older electronic formats and does not necessarily have the same appearance and functionality as later releases.
