REVISIONS

In this issue revisions have been made to the original series as a result of improved reporting of survey and administrative data. These revisions have an impact on:
  • Owner occupied housing values for periods June 2013 to June 2015.
  • Commercial Finance values for periods September 2013 to June 2015.
  • Personal Finance values for the periods August 2013 to June 2015.
  • Lease Finance values for June 2015.
  • Investment housing for the periods September 2013 to June 2015.

Improved reporting by a significant lender from December 2014 has resulted in trend breaks being applied to the following series in December 2014:
  • Secured Housing Finance - Alterations and additions series published in Tables 1 and 8.
  • Personal Finance - Fixed loans series published in Tables 1 and 50.
  • Personal Finance - Revolving credit series published in Tables 1 and 50.
  • Personal Finance - Total series published in Tables 1 and 50.

The ABS is currently investigating the impact on the series estimates for the periods prior to December 2014 and will determine if adjustments are necessary to the historical series. Any resulting revisions will be published in future issues of this publication.


LEASE FINANCE

This July 2015 issue includes unusual lease finance activity which impacted the original and seasonal adjusted series for Lease Finance. Due to this unusual activity, a correction has been applied to the trend series for Lease Finance in July 2015.
