The seasonally adjusted and trend series have been revised following the scheduled annual re-analysis of the seasonally adjusted data series. The seasonal and trading day factors are reviewed annually at a more detailed level than possible in the monthly processing cycle. The annual re-analysis can result in relatively higher revisions to the seasonally adjusted series than during normal monthly processing. For Retail Trade, the results of the latest review are included in this issue based on raw data up to June 2010.
There are no revisions to the original estimates.
